GJEPC Chairman Mr. Praveenshankar Pandya said, “The Middle East has emerged as a key market for the Indian gem & Jewellery industry. India’s exports to Middle East accounted for US$ 13.85 billion in 2016. Indian manufacturers are wellversed with the requirements of Middle East customers, and more over the jewellery preferences and design sensibilities of the region are very similar to that of India which is an advantage for the Indian manufacturers. As our trade relations are becoming increasingly significant our partnership with VOD Dubai International Jewellery Show is a great platform for our Indian manufacturers and retailers to get access to surrounding markets including, Russia, Africa, Central and South-East Asia.”
India Pavilion is set in 3 sections. The location of retail section is at Zabeel hall no. 4, Trade Section in Zabeel hall no. 6 & India Product Gallery at Zabeel hall no.6. A total of 84 companies are participating under both the section of India Pavilion and India product gallery which includes 33 exhibitors from trade section; 36 exhibitors from retail section, 2 exhibitors of Diamonds & Gemstones; 1 Global Brand; 12 in India product Gallery.
“Dubai having close proximity with the largest consuming markets, serves as a jewellery transhipment point. With its strategic location in the trade network connecting Asia with the Mediterranean and North Africa, Dubai has thrived in its role as a regional trade hub. Presence of numerous Indian jewellers, ease of reach, minimal government regulations make Dubai an ideal choice for holding an international jewellery exhibition. Moreover, Dubai is known as the ‘city of gold’ and ‘jewellery destination of the world’ that offers a perfect platform for jewellers to meet their potential partners from Asia, Middle East and North Africa”, added Mr. Pandya.
The Indian traders and retailers are all geared up to showcase the best of their designs and creations at VOD Dubai International Jewellery Show 2017.
