Diamond Exporters Considering Domestic Market To Promote Business

25 may 2009

The Hindu Business Line reports that with the dip in gem and jewellery exports following the global recession, the exporters might take a closer look at the domestic market to boost business.
Diamond exports, which were growing at about 5-6 percent for the last few years, dropped by about 7-8 percent to $13.02 billion in 2008-09 from $14.2 billion in 2007-08.
Diamonds account for almost 75 percent of the total gem and jewellery basket and its consumption in domestic market has been growing at over 100 percent in the last five years, according to Mr Vasant Mehta, Chairman, Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC).
"We do not expect the exports to pick up if there is no turnaround in recession by August-September. However, in 2010-2011, the situation should improve and diamond exports can grow by 5 percent again," Mr Mehta observed.
