In 2012 Rami was part of the team responsible for WORLD DIAMOND MARK TM initiative, a new WFDB marketing plan created for the world diamond and jewellery industry.
Rami was elected to the executive committee of the WFDB, the first Australian to ever hold such a position.
In 2012 he was promoted to Vice Chairman of the WFDB Promotional Committee, and in May 2016 at the 37th World Diamond Congress in Dubai, Rami was elected Chairman of this committee. At the same congress he launched the International Young Diamantaires initiative.
“This program is about bringing the next generation of diamantaires forward to provide the new ideas, passion, and inspiration that our industry needs to bring us into the new century.”
“My goal is to challenge our thinking as an industry. Our strategy must be inclusive, not exclusive. Today we must look to inspire the next generation, and accept that all the premises that we base our decisions on can and must be challenged.”
