H.E. Mr. Vipul, Ambassador of India to Qatar,
said, “Our main job as the embassy is to promote Indian exports and facilitate trade between our two nations. As part of this effort, we actively promote Indian jewellery in Qatar. Doha Jewellery & Watches Exhibition (DJWE) represents a significant opportunity, and I am delighted to see the substantial Indian Pavilion present here. Our close collaboration with GJEPC underscores our commitment to raising awareness and promoting Indian jewellery. In the Qatari market, numerous Indian jewellers are already engaged, either independently or through various partnerships and retailers. Thus, there is already a strong level of brand recognition and appreciation for the quality of Indian jewellery within Qatar.”

Qatar, in particular, holds significance for India, contributing to the export of gold jewellery, amounting to USD 200.88 million in the fiscal year 2022-23. The India Pavilion at the DJWE serves as a valuable platform to explore and comprehend consumer trends and preferences, particularly from this region, providing an opportunity for further engagement.”

“International buyers from the UAE, the Middle East, Africa, and the rest of the CIS find seamless access to Indian exhibitors through the India Jewellery Exposition Centre (IJEX) in Dubai.
