The All India Gem and Jewellery Domestic Council (GJC) has announced that its first Preferred Manufacturers of India (PMI) event of 2019 will be held in Coimbatore, the southern Indian manufacturing and export hub, from January 8 to 10. Participating jewellery manufacturers will be showcasing their product to 150 Indian jewellery retailers.
GJC Chairman Nitin Khandelwal commented that Coimbatore was the ideal location to kick of the PMI initiative as the city is home to over 50,000 goldsmiths and more than 25,000 small and medium enterprises, making it a showcase for the ‘Make in India’ initiative.
GJC Vice Chairman Anantha Padmanaban commented, “Our aim is to help participants from all parts of the country by fulfilling their business objectives,” adding, “Coimbatore offers the best of traditional and temple jewellery as well as modern designs to retailers from different parts of the country.”
GJC PMI Convener Sumeet Anand noted that the PMI initiative was curated by the GJC to promote industry trade across the country. “We have combined best-in-class manufacturers from the country on a single platform to give retailers their pick of product,” he said.
