Ministry of Commerce’s Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) opened the 61st edition of the Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair (BGJF) under the theme of “Heritage & Craftsmanship” highlighting Thailand’s cultural heritage and the exquisite craftsmanship of Thai artisans while setting the stage for local and international companies to engage in trade negotiations.

Sontirat Sontijirawong, Minister of Commerce revealed, “The gems and jewellery industry is a high-potential industry today that is key to the Thai economy. The strength of the industry lies throughout the value chain, from sourcing, manufacturing, to trading with a workforce of approximately 1.2 million from upstream to downstream. Thus the government is committed to implementing measures to ensure continuous growth of the industry while setting a goal of propelling Thailand to become ‘the world’s jewellery hub’.

‘The Ministry of Commerce  has carried out policies  to promote the growth of the gems and jewellery industry in order to increase the competitive edge for business while seeking new market channels and developing new market products that cater to latest industry trends. Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair is key platform that offers  an opportunity  for Thai companies, both large and small, to do business with high-potential business people and buyers from  around the world, learn about customer needs, and expand their  business networks and exchange knowledge with others,” said the Minister of Commerce.

Thai jewellery is both skillfully crafted and full of creativity. To align with the government’s “Thailand 4.0” and “Creative Economy” initiatives, the Fair organizer is presenting new ideas in the exhibition zones, from The Niche Showcase that exhibits five niche jewelry trends, The New Faces that highlights the best of Thai SMEs from all regions, a showcase zone that will be greatly expanded this year, to exhibitions and workshops from The Jewellers, a group of designers who focus on creative and innovation jewellery-making. Moreover, educational seminars and one-on-one consulting services from experts will be on offer as well as a mobile gems analyzing unit from GIT and other world-leading institutes.

The 61st Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair will take place from February 21-25, 2018 at Challenger Hall 1-3, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani. The fair opens for trade negotiations during February 21-23, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and opens for the general public on February 24, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and February 25, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. For more information and pre-registration, please visit www.bkkgems.com or dial DITP Call Center 1169.
