Facets 2006 will host over 100 booths, including foreign exhibitors from Singapore, Dubai, Thailand, India, Hong Kong and Myanmar. The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) will have a presence at the show and will be answer all visitor queries

The island’s history of gem mining dates back 2,500 years. Last year the country’s gem exports touched $250 million, with known reserves expected to last 100 years, according to the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA). The January-to-May 2006 period saw Sri Lanka’s gem exports grow by 28 per cent to $43.5 million compared to $34.1 million in the corresponding period a year ago, according to the National Gem and Jewellery Authority (NGJA).
