Dubai Accounted for 40% of the Global Gold Sales in 2013

14 april 2014

The growing gold consumption in China and India is creating more business opportunities in the Middle East, according to industry experts. With the demand rising, refineries in the Middle East, including Dubai, are expanding their capacity and new ones are being established, according to Pradeep Unni, head of research, strategy and trading at Richcomm Global Services. The gold is refined in Dubai and then exported to India and to China through Hong Kong, he added.
Also, gold jewellers in India are opening stores in Dubai. Unni points out that in India, buyers have to pay a ten per cent duty on top of the international market price, unlike in the UAE. This makes Dubai an attractive destination for gold, jewellery purchases.
