The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) of India inaugurated the 2nd edition of the International Gem & Jewellery Show (IGJS) in Dubai, in the presence of His Excellency Mr. Sunjay Sudhir, Ambassador of India to UAE; Ms. Laila Suhail, CEO Strategic Alliance & Partnerships Sector, Dubai Economy and Tourism; Mr. Kirit Bhansali, Vice Chairman GJEPC; Mr. Chandu Siroya, Vice Chairman, Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group (DGJG); Mr. Nilesh Kothari, Convener International Exhibitions, GJEPC; and Mr. Milan Chokshi, Co-Convener International Exhibitions, GJEPC along with others.
The show is being organised from 8th – 10th November 2022 at the Intercontinental Dubai Festival City, Dubai. IGJS Dubai is supported by Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Govt of India & Embassy of India, Dubai and partnered by Sequel, IGI and Suntech Business Solutions.
UAE has been a key market for Indian gem and jewellery exports accounting for 14% of India’s overall G&J exports in FY 2021-22; and post the India-UAE CEPA, it has further gained traction. A platform like IGJS in Dubai will further help members from both countries to understand their strengths and take advantage of the India-UAE CEPA.
Another advantage is that the UAE serves as India’s gateway to the WANA (Western Asia and North Africa) region, and it helps strengthen trade ties with other Gulf Cooperation Council members such as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
IGJS is a curated exhibition with a global focus, offering top-quality ‘Made in India’ jewellery exclusively to international buyers. This year IGJS Dubai is hosting more than 350+ pre-registered international visitors from 25+ countries. A range of products including plain gold jewellery, diamond & gemstones studded jewellery, etc. are being exhibited at the show. IGJS Dubai is GJEPC’s first standalone show organised consecutively in Dubai for the second time.
