Pakistan to study Sri Lanka’s gem industry techniques

DELEGATION: A Pakistani delegation is due to arrive shortly in Sri Lanka to study this country’s experience in developing Pakistan’s gem and jewellery industry.


Meeting: Pakistan High Commissioner Shahzad A. Chaudhry at a meeting with Minister Mano Wijeratne.

Arrangements have been made to brief the delegation on the industry’s different aspects such as gem mining, cutting and polishing and jewellery manufacture during the visit, according to National Gem and Jewellery Authority Chairman Hasitha Tillekeratne.

He said this at a discussion with the Pakistan High Commissioner in Sri Lanka Shahzad A. Chaudhry. This follows a recent meeting the High Commissioner had with Enterprise Development and Investment Promotion Minister Mano Wijayaratna.

At the meeting the HC stressed the need for the assistance of Sri Lanka’s state and private sector in developing Pakistan’s gem and jewellery industry. Various facilities provided under one roof to gem traders here, drew Chaudhry’s special attention.

Pakistan’s gem and jewellery industry is still largely at a developing stage. Sri Lankan expertise is expected to play a major role in improving various aspects of the industry in that country.

The others who participated in the meeting between NGJA Chairman and the Pakistan HC were Senior Manager, Export Promotion NGJA, Ajith Perera, Senior Valuer Gemmologist Upali Nandalal and Manager Assaying S. C. Edirisinghe.
