“The world market for fashion accessories is estimated to be of the order of 16.3-billion-dollar and India's share in the same has been very negligible. Therefore, there is a great scope for further increasing exports of Indian fashion accessories and jewellery,” Smt. Menon said.

She further said that there is a big sort of potential in this segment and such dedicated and focused shows such as Indian Fashion Jewellery and Accessories Show (IFJAS) should be organized for the benefit of manufacturers as well as overseas buyers.

On the occasion, Smt. Menon felicitated the pioneers of the fashion jewellery and accessories segment of the Handicrafts Sector and further said that this would give a due recognition to the old timers who worked hard to establish this segment and the IFJAS 2010 is the right place to honour them.

Fashion jewellery and accessories has tremendous potential world wide. Even despite recession in the world, the market for fashion accessories continued to benefit and remained stable.

Many buyers and importers may want to invest in Indian entrepreneurs and for setting up new units to produce goods of their requirement taking into account the Indian skills, raw materials etc.
