At the inauguration of ‘China Jewellery Culture and Creation Industry,’ – a new trade association in China, the guest of honour CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri encouraged the leadership of the Chinese jewellery industry to become a more prominent entity in jewellery design, a major manufacturing centre and consumer market. "China has firmly established itself as a major consumer market and manufacturing centre. It now is time is assert itself as a force in jewellery design, and put its stamp on the industry, much in the same way that my colleagues in Italy have done for so long. I am confident that the new association will play a role in the injection of Chinese design and artistic perception into the international jewellery arena," Dr. Cavalieri stated.

Dr. Cavalieri also emphasised China’s impact in the global jewellery trade, and its responsibility towards it. "It is most important to remember that we are an international market, and that what happens here in China impacts throughout the global chain of distribution, just as what happens elsewhere will have an effect on the Chinese business".

"Fine jewellery, in so many ways, is the perfect blend of art, culture and business," he added. "Furthermore, it is also a tool by which whole communities can create better and healthier lives for themselves. That is our mission, and so I trust it also is the mission of the Chinese jewellery industry. Today, here in Shenzhen, on this momentous occasion, I call on the Chinese jewellery community to take an active leadership role in our international industry."

The establishment of the new trade association in China has gained wide support from industry trade associations in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Its inauguration ceremony was also attended by Bai Licheng, vice chairman of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPCC), chief political advisory body of the People's Republic of China, and Long Yongtu, secretary-general of the Boao Forum for Asia.
