The Israel Diamond Pavilion will host 30 companies at the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, which is scheduled for June 20 to 23 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The pavilion, organised by the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI), will include a spacious lounge in a more modern design. Convenient “Get Diamonds” terminals will enable buyers to search a computerised database in both English and Chinese of all goods offered by Israeli exhibitors at the show. Buyers are also able to access the Get Diamonds Show system on their smartphones.
Asia is Israel’s second largest market for polished diamonds, representing about 30 percent of total polished diamond exports, with the greatest share going to Hong Kong. Israel is also an important supplier of polished diamonds to China, India, Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and other Asian markets.
IDI Chairman Boaz Moldawsky commented, “Asia is a key market for our industry. We are seeing a definite rise in demand for diamond jewellery in these markets, especially in China. The long-term prospects for Asia as a market for polished diamonds from Israel are encouraging and we are committed to this market now and in the future.”
