On the opening day of DJGF Utsav, Ms. Meenakshi Lekhi, Minister of External Affairs and Culture, said, “It is good to be a part of an initiative or craft that provides value and employment to people. The government is making efforts to galvanise the Indian jewellery business sector. Jewellery making and craftsmanship have always been an essential part of our culture, right from the Harappan or Indus Valley civilization till today. From a historical perspective, India has always been an important buyer and seller of the jewellery community, almost equal to many countries combined. That is why India has been called ‘Sone ki Chidiya’ or ‘Golden bird’. It generates massive employment and gives an immense boost to the economy of the country. Craftmanship in the jewellery business needs to be promoted and bolstered. I hope this happens through initiatives such as this show and many more people, especially girls, join the business, whether as traders or craftsmen.”

In his address to the esteemed guests and media, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, MD, Informa Markets in India, said, “With its expertise in the jewellery portfolio globally and across India in multiple Indian markets such as North, South and East, Informa Markets in India understands India’s love for sparkle. It was therefore heartening to note that our efforts to make the 10th anniversary of DJGF special drew widespread interest and engagement among all industry stakeholders. In the post-vaccination phase, there is optimism and festive cheer in the market and this gets translated prominently in the gem and jewellery segment too, which is currently seeing an approximate 10 per cent appreciation year-on-year. India’s growth story in this arena lies in the organised sector and expos such as ours help to catalyse this growth. There’s been a marked increase in the organised vs unorganised ratio from 23:77 from 2016 to the expected 42:58 in 2023.

The show reinforced the pole position of India’s export-oriented and labour-intensive gem and jewellery industry.
