The meet is expected to attract over 60 buyers from SAARC, Middle East and South East Asia including jewellery retailers, chain store retailers, wholesalers, traders, and 40 leading Indian manufacturers of plain gold and diamond studded jewellery, reports add. The purpose is to enhance bilateral trade. Jewellery studded with synthetic diamonds will not be permitted at the event, reports say.
There would be an interactive format to the meet for the first two days and a mini-exhibition on the third day. Buyers and sellers will be grouped into three groups with a mix of companies from each region. Every group will have one-to-one meetings over the first two days. On the third day, each group can interact with buyers and sellers from other groups.
GJEPC notes the platform holds encouragement for the trade to promote bilateral trade and investment, as the selected regions share similar jewellery preferences in addition to the growing healthy trade relations between the regions and the various efforts taken by the Council to promote Indian jewellery in the regions.
