A PGJDC official said that Pakistan has huge potential of exporting its precious and semi precious stones after value addition and can earn millions of dollars in foreign exchange. He further said that unfortunate part is that we have been exporting our gemstones without value addition thus are unable to fetch the right price for our exports. PGJDC, it was pointed out, is working on several projects to impart the required skills and education to the stakeholders so that they could recognize the importance of exports after value addition. The PGJDC official said that Gem Bazaar has been organized in a professional manner to ensure high security and transparency in trading. The Gem Bazaar will be an ongoing feature which will contribute immensely to the continuous efforts that PGJDC is putting in for the development of Gems and Jewellery industry of Pakistan. He said such initiatives by the Company will boost confidence, motivation and trust on PGJDCs initiatives for the development of the industry. It will further enhance the value chain productivity of the sector, which will also enable the miners to rise above unnecessary exploitation and deprivation from direct trading. The interested buyers will be exposed to quality products on competitive prices, which will add tangible value to their business endeavours.
