Ring In The New Year
The year that was – might as well be forgotten as 2020 was arguably one of the most disturbing years in the recent times.

World over, life, work, business and economies were disrupted. Diamond exports in India declined by 31.33 per cent as compared to last year and in the USA by 33.26 per cent. Global economy has been badly affected.

The pandemic if anything has been a leveler of sorts. Every strata of the society has been affected – some worse than others.

It has set a New Normal, which is being following by every business owner meticulously. In India post Dussehra, however the business has been gradually improving. Green shoots are visible and the diamond continues to shine!

The New Year holds the promise of a brand new beginning – one in which Diamond businesses will improve and bring in the much needed stability in the economy. So ring out the old and ring in the New!
