The Indian gem and jewellery industry is launching its international promotional campaign at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, said the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC).
GJEPC Chairman Pramod Agarwal commented, “Hong Kong has been India’s largest export market, with 33 percent of the country’s $42 billion in gem and jewellery exports directed there. India exported $10 billion in polished diamonds and $973.4 million in gold jewellery to Hong Kong. It has also become a promising for Indian coloured gemstone exports, while Indian jewellery exports to Hong Kong are on the rise.”
GJEPC Vice Chairman Colin Shah noted, “One can’t think of a better platform. The Hong Kong show witnesses a convergence of leading gem and jewellery players from across the globe.”
The GJEPC is leading an Indian contingent of 94 exhibitors through the India Pavilion at the show. Coloured gemstone and diamond dealers will be located at Halls 10 and 11 respectively at the AsiaWorld Expo from September 12 to 16, while jewellery firms will be at Hall 3E at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre from September 14 to18.
