The Moscow Diamond Bourse (MDB) and India's Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) have organized the first-ever networking meeting between Indian diamond manufacturers and Russian buyers, scheduled for April 3 to 5 2012.
The meeting will take place in Surat, a leading diamond manufacturing city in India, with representatives from 15 of the world’s largest diamond firms set to hold meetings with their Russian guests. The companies will offer an assortment of polished diamonds of all cuts, sizes and clarities.
The MDB’s president Alex Popov said: "This is the first opportunity for Russian companies to establish direct business relations with diamond manufacturers in Surat, which is the very heart of India's diamond industry.
"During the past few years, we have been making considerable efforts to establish a working relationship between the council and our bourse and I am very encouraged by this pilot project. In our delegation of around 30 members, we will have jewellers joining us from all over the Russian Federation.”
The program will includes business meetings, diamond viewings, visits to polishing plants and a roundtable discussion including GJEPC Chairman Rajiv Jain and the MDB's Popov.
The Russian visitors will also travel to Jaipur, India's leading coloured gemstones manufacturing and trading hub, to provide them with a deeper understanding of the city's gemstone industry.
