THE Gems Trading Centre and Gems Training Centre were opened in the Shwekyarpin finished jade lots, gems and jewellery market in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
Union Ministers Dr Myint Aung, U Htay Aung and U Win Myint, deputy ministers and officials observed preparations for training and trading at the two centres after the opening ceremony. Under the supervision of the Ministry of Mines, the Myanmar Gems and Jewellery Entrepreneurs Association built the two facilities with the aim of turning out jewellery technicians and producing finished jade lots and gems and jewellery to bolster the jade, gem and jewellery markets in Myanmar.
“The training centre is set to offer theory and practices on how to distinguish real jade from fake jade and how to cut and polish jade,” said U Yone Mu, chairman of the association, adding that Myanmar needs a training centre to develop its gems and jewellery industry.
Works are underway to open training courses that will vary depending on the educational background of trainees at the centre.
