G&J Sector Plays Key Role in Achieving $400 Billion Export Target

G&J Sector Plays Key Role in Achieving $400 Billion Export Target. The gem & jewellery industry has been working earnestly to contribute to the ambitious target of $400 Billion of goods exports set by the Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And the gem & jewellery sector is proud that it has contributed nearly 10% as India achieves this milestone for the first time ever.

Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “India has achieved a historic milestone under the visionary leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister. The significance of this achievement is the accomplishment of the target immediately post pandemic. The gem & jewellery industry is proud to contribute nearly 10% of the USD 400 billion exports target. The country’s gem & jewellery exports in April ’21 – Feb ’22, grew 63% to $35.48 billion on a year-on-year basis.”

“The Govt. has set a target of USD 50 billion for FY 2022-23, and has also opened up new channels for growth by executing the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) with UAE that will have immense benefit for the Indian gem and jewellery industry. The CEPA with the UAE is likely to boost our exports to the tune of USD 10 billion to the Middle East. We are also happy that the Govt. would be signing similar agreements with Canada, the UK and Australia soon.”
