ICA Congress reiterates China’s importance in the global jewellery industry

13 may 2009

The ICA Congress concluded in Panyu, China, with the highest attendance in its history, hosting 200 overseas delegates from 26 countries and more than 750 local Chinese participants. The Congress was a successful platform to reassure the global diamond industry of the vast opportunities that lie ahead in the Chinese gem, diamond and jewellery market. According to experts, the Chinese domestic market for jewellery will also double in the next few years, growing into the largest market in the world.
The discussion at the ICA event included a presentation of a project for the standardisation of coloured gemstones in China, to improve quality, industrial competitiveness, and consumer awareness in that nation. Another was an announcement of ICA becoming a member of CASM (Communities and Small-Scale Mining), a World Bank initiative “to reduce poverty by improving the environmental, social, and economic performance of artisanal and small-scale mining in developing countries.”
