GJEPC launches India Jewellery Exposition Centre (IJEX) in Dubai
IJEX will enable India’s MSME manufacturers to take advantage of India-UAE CEPA to expand in the Middle East region
India and the United Arab Emirates celebrated the first anniversary of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA). Commemorating the 1st year of India-UAE CEPA, apex trade body Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) launched the first-of-its-kind India Jewellery Exposition Centre (IJEX), the 365-day exhibition platform in Dubai.
IJEX is a 365-day exhibition and showcasing venue in Dubai located at the new Gold Souk in Deira, Dubai. This would be a much-needed platform for MSME jewellers to exhibit their indigenously products on a regular continuous basis in the Middle East market. Since the Middle East market accounts for 30% of India’s gem and jewellery exports, IJEX will enable India’s MSME manufacturers to take advantage of India-UAE CEPA to expand in the WANA region.
Commemorating this historic milestone, officials from both India and the UAE convened in Dubai at a gala function on 9th May 2023. Present on the occasion were Mr. Rajesh Kumar Singh (Secretary, DPIIT, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India); His Excellency Sunjay Sudhir, (Ambassador of India to UAE); His Excellency Juma Al Kait (Assistant Undersecretary - Foreign Trade Affairs at Ministry of Economy, UAE); Dr. Srikar K. Reddy (Joint Secretary, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India); Mr. Sanjiv, (Joint Secretary, DPIIT, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India) along with Mr. Kirit Bhansali (Vice Chairman, GJEPC).
