The Chinese jewellery manufacturer, Harvest Way Group is in the process of recruiting prospective students to undergo a year-long specialised diamond cutting training programme in China.

The Guandong based firm’s managing director, Mr Teddy Cheung said apart from setting up a factory in the country, the institution has prioritised investing in skills transfer as evidenced by the diamond cutting scholarship programme.

Harvest Way Zimbabwe managing director, Dr Edwin Gwenzi said the training programme gives the country the necessary foundation to become the regional hub for diamond processing.

Students will be exposed to all the areas in the diamond value chain which include diamond cutting, jewellery manufacturing, factory management and marketing.

On completion of the training, successful students will be required to work for the company for a period of no less than three years.
