“Due to travel restrictions, using technology to connect with business partners throughout the globe. GJEPC is doing really impressive work. The virtual formats are interactive as they focus on one-on-one meetings. This technology, especially for the new generation, will be the new normal.”
The ten Jaipur-based exhibitors comprise Fine Colour Gems, Sheru Gems, Ashok Jewellers, K.K. Gems Trading Company, Swastic Exports, Gems Park, Dusad & Company, V.P.

The GJEPC has recently been undertaking a wide range of activities focused on the gem industry. The traders’ body recently shifted and updated the Gem Testing Laboratory in Jaipur with a new space, new machinery, and a host of new services and also launched a month-long gem expo in Jaipur which is ongoing. The GJEPC plans to ameliorate India’s standing in the global gem market.
