Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said: “The overall sentiment in the gem and jewellery industry is quite positive. Manufacturing activity peaked in the pre-Diwali period, reflected by the 16% jump in exports for October due to strong demand from key markets, led by the US. I estimate that this spike would be immediately followed by a dip in manufacturing activity as most companies closed for the traditional Diwali break. However, I am hopeful that the momentum will recover in the last quarter of the financial year, thus helping us to achieve our goal of USD 41.75 billion in exports for the year 2021-22.”
