One of the most unnoticed industries of Pakistan – the gems and jewellery sector – is no more a minnow. After crossing a psychological export barrier of $1 billion this year, the confidence of the industry people was visible on the inauguration day of the three-day gems and jewellery exhibition 2013.
With more stalls this year, exhibitors say that they are optimistic of more business opportunities in coming months.
The exhibition was launched at the Pearl Continental Hotel where over 70 stalls have been setup for the event.
The jewellery industry has come out with a bang his year. It crossed the $1-billion mark with a whopping increase of 137% in the first eight months of the current fiscal year compared to $506 million in 12 months of previous year.
