This article, if I ever stop rambling, is about doing business in Zimbabwe now that the E.U. sanctions have been lifted. I use LinkedIn and my website to reach prospective Email Database customers from around the world. Because of my high visibility, I often receive offers to go to Zim to purchase rough diamonds. Up until recently, this was not possible. Just as a quick side-bar, the Email Database sanctions imposed upon Zimbabwe have been effective in creating a great deal of damage to the economy. I know the sanctions are imposed to try and affect regime change, but that strategy has been counter-productive. The people I spoke with don't blame Mr. Mugabe for their suffering and hardship, they blame the West. The banks have a severe liquidity problem and the poor and the Email Database average person are the ones who are paying the price for the sanctions. White, black, green or yellow, everyone Email Database I spoke to about the sanctions wanted to tell the West that it is they the folks, who are suffering and paying the price. Back to diamonds. As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, I am approached to buy Zim diamonds at least once a week. Everyone tells me how easy it is to buy in Zimbabwe. They tell me they can bring me vast quantities of goods of the highest color, shape and clarity. Not having any experience in Zim, it was quite difficult to determine the truth. At any rate, I was not allowed to go to Zim and did not Email Database feel any need to find out the truth. The American government has now removed the restrictions from the country and you can now bring in Zimbabwe diamonds into the U.S. The caveat is, there is a 25 page list of individuals who Americans cannot do business with. Perhaps, because I am not accustomed to trying to get information, I found it difficult to find out who is on this list.
