Govt seeks newer ways to enhance gems & jewelry sector

Apr '08
In order to gain momentum in international market, Pakistan Gems and Jewellery Development Company (PGJDC), in collaboration with Pakistan Chamber of Commerce USA (PCC-USA), is planning to hold a series of exhibitions in various parts of America, beginning with Houston in October this year.

More than 50 traders have shown keen interest in displaying their wide range of products, right from rough and cut gemstones to breathtaking gold and silver ornaments in expo. Experts believe that, the participatants here will get a chance to understand the latest trends prevalent in the international market.

To strengthen gem and jewellary sector of Pakistan, a group of businessmen from US will visit the country later this year. Simultaneously, PCC-USA is also making constant efforts to make the products of the nation popular in America.

Pakistan has been gifted with abundant resources of several precious and semi-precious gemstones, yet this sector has not been able to gain its sheen in global market.

As a result, PGJDC will soon establish Gems & Jewellery Common Facility Training & Manufacturing Centres (CFTMCs). It would enable the artisans working in this industry, to get professional training and polish their skills. These CFTMCs have been planned in Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, Peshawar and Gilgit at initial stage.
