Myanmar jewellery entrepreneurs will display gems and jewellery products at Bangkok Gems and Jewellery Fair which will be held from 15th to 18th June, said an official from Yangon Gems and Jewellery Entrepreneurs Association.
The aforementioned association has joined Bangkok Gems and Jewellery Fair since 2014. The association participated in 57th Bangkok Gems and Jewellery Fair with about 50 stalls.
Thai Gems and jewellery industry is listed as one of the world’s largest gems and jewellery fair. This Fair can bring about the economic opportunity with international countries and exchange the new techniques, he added.
Thailand purchases the raw gem materials from international countries. They also buy the gems produced from Mogok, Myanmar but the mining of ruby is found to decline.
Thailand purchased nearly 30 per cent in the previous years but with the decline of raw materials in Myanmar, it is now purchasing only 5 per cent.
