The recently executed India-Australia Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement has secured preferential access for the Indian gems and jewellery products in Australia. The Indian government recently signed a similar CEPA with the UAE. Currently India-Australia has a significant bilateral trade of USD 950 million for gem and jewellery commodities. Key commodities that are exported to Australia are gold jewellery plain and studded and polished diamonds. The main commodities imported from Australia are precious metals that include gold and silver bars.

Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “The historic India-Australia trade agreement is expected to unlock millions of dollars of additional trade due to the preferential access accorded towards India’s gem and jewellery exports to the island nation. While India-UAE CEPA will build inroads for plain gold jewellery to the Middle East, and CECA with Australia would provide preferential advantage for the studded jewellery sector. Australia is one of our large suppliers of gold and silver bullion, and until recently, it was also a key supplier of diamonds. We expect Australia to benefit from access to areas where India is a world leader, such as diamonds. By providing preferential access for Indian gems and jewellery exports, the deal also makes it cheaper for Australian retailers to procure world-class jewellery crafted with finesse from Indian manufacturers. We expect the Agreement to boost bilateral gem and jewellery trade from USD 950 million at present to USD 1.5 billion.”
