Diamond and Jewelry Exchange To Be Set Up In Armenia

03 june 2009

A diamond and jewelry exchange is to be set up in Armenia, Gagik Kocharyan, head of the trade and market efficiency department at the Armenian Ministry of Economy, told a press conference at Novosti international press center. The exchange is to operate within a free trade zone to be established at Zvartnots airport, he said. Kocharyan said that both raw and cut diamonds, as well as jewelry produced in Armenia, are to be sold on the exchange, RAPAPORT reported citing ARKA news agency.
Creating a diamond and jewelry exchange in Yerevan will give Armenia an opportunity to play a serious role in the region, to attract various world market participants to Armenia and to promote jewelry sales inside the country, Kocharyan said. He also pointed out that implementation of this idea may require much time, as the necessary raw-materials base and its respective infrastructure will have to be established.
"Armenia needs to get well-prepared not to disappoint the market and to provide a wide range of products, in terms of kinds and quality, to ensure the respective permanent demand for the product," Kocharyan said. The project will be implemented in close cooperation with the private sector.
The necessity of creating a diamond exchange in the country was first raised back in 2003 by representatives of the jewelry sector, who claimed that the lack of an exchange was impeding the activities of jewelry companies. According to the market participants, such an exchange could be formed only through large financial investments, which were impossible to acquire from internal sources and were expected to come from Armenian communities abroad.
