DMCC and Indian council tie up for jewellery expo


08/02/2014 09:20 AST

DMCC, Dubai’s and the region’s global gateway for commodity trade and enterprise, and the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council, or GJEPC India, are to host the Global Gem & Jewellery Fair (GGJF) for the first time in Dubai from March 20-22.

With over 130 exhibitors participating from India and the GCC, the Global Gem & Jewellery Fair will provide an ideal platform for international buyers and sellers as they seek to trade top quality gems and couture jewellery during the three-day event where visitors from across the globe including GCC, KSA, Egypt, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Singapore, Eastern Europe, Russia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia, will take part.

Speaking at a Press conference held at Almas Tower, the tallest commercial tower in the Middle East, Ahmed bin Sulayem, executive chairman, DMCC said: “It is vital to continuously create new opportunities to nurture international relations with strong trading partners such as India. That is why we are collaborating with the GJEPC to introduce the inaugural ‘Global Gem & Jewellery Fair’ to the region and the GCC market. We are proud to host this event and to welcome industry participants from across the globe to Dubai.”

Dubai has quickly emerged as one of the leading global centres for trade of gold, diamonds and precious stones. Combine that strength with the Emirate’s ideal location between the producing and consuming nations along the ‘New Silk Route’ and its unrivalled infrastructure including world-class cargo facilities, ports and airports that connect to over 220 destinations — the emirate is all set to host the GGJF 2014.

“India’s central role as the sourcing centre for diamonds and precious stones jewellery is renowned world-wide. For years traders and visitors to India have enjoyed the craftsmanship, quality, design and cost efficiency — now it’s time we return the gesture and bring the source to Dubai — the most promising destination for the gemstones and jewellery trade in recent times,” said Pankaj Parekh, vice-chairman, GJEPC.

“GJEPC is pleased to collaborate with DMCC — it has established itself as the largest free zone in the UAE and the international leader for commodities trade and enterprise in just over a decade.”
