opens LegCo president Andrew Leung officiates
the opening ceremony

Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the sixth Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show opened at AsiaWorld-Expo. The five-day event runs from 26 Feb to 2 March and brings together a record number of 1,990 exhibitors from 33 countries and regions to showcase a medley of jewellery raw materials. This afternoon’s opening ceremony was officiated by Andrew Leung, President of the Legislative Council (LegCo), and featured actresses Serene Lim and Lisa Ch'ng presenting fine jewellery collections.

The 36th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, featuring finished jewellery, will run from 28 Feb to 4 March at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The twin shows welcome a record number of more than 4,600 exhibitors from 48 countries and regions in 2019, forming the world’s largest jewellery marketplace.

Vibrant tourism lifts jewellery industry outlook amid ongoing trade conflict Benjamin Chau, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director, said: “Although the outcome of the trade talks between Mainland China and United States remains unclear, and uncertainties continue to weigh on the global economic outlook, the jewellery industry is buoyed by favourable factors. Last year’s opening of the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge helped boost jewellery sales by attracting a record-breaking number of tourists to Hong Kong, while the demand for jewellery products from consumers in Mainland China remains strong.”

Looking forward, the HKTDC will help Hong Kong’s small and medium-sized enterprises capture opportunities presented by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and to venture into emerging markets in the ASEAN region with a burgeoning middle class, including countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. Mr Chau added that the HKTDC has organised a total of 120 buying missions comprising 8,300 companies from 75 countries and regions to visit the twin jewellery shows. Among the participants, 700 companies are from the United States while 5,800 come from emerging markets.
