WJD to propel $3bn Dubai retail jewellery trade

Dec '05
Watch and Jewellery Dubai (WJD) 2005, currently being held at the Airport Expo Dubai (5th to 9th December) is generating significant interest among exhibitors and trade visitors from the GCC region, rest of the Middle East proving that further sizeable growth opportunities continue to exist for Dubai's US$3-billion retail jewellery trade.

Participating companies have reported substantial business enquiries during the first three days, according to organisers Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

The five-day exhibition has attracted leading names in the jewlery industry. In fact, this year's edition has seen a larger international representation with country pavilions from Hong Kong, Italy, Turkey, Belgium, India, Thailand, Korea, Brazil, apart from independent participants and leading Dubai-based companies.

While it is too soon to talk on the deals inked, consider the fact that despite its modest size, the UAE remains one of the world's top ten gold consuming countries.

Rosy Blue, one of the world's biggest and most renowned leaders in the design, manufacture and distribution of fine diamonds and jewllery reported that with global vision and dedication to serving the needs of every client, Rosy Blue is 'More than Diamonds' said Dilip Mehta, CEO, Rosy Blue.

As a leading siteholder and a premier client of the Diamond Trading Company (DTC) of the De Beers Group, we are a key infrastructure provider to both small and large businesses. They are partners to our clients in the truest sense and are delighted with the visitor turnout at the event.
