Council Initiatives
Indo Russia Diamond BSM
Indo Russia Diamond BSM

In our endeavor to promote Indian exports to emerging markets, Council has been continuously adapting new business initiatives and devising programs with Russia & CIS region with a view to establish new business relationships in the gem & jewellery sector. Recently, we had successfully organized the 1st ever Indo-Russia Jewellery Summit in June 2011 at Mumbai which was attended by 12 high volume Wholesalers and Retailers.

In continuation of the above, in view of the current business needs of the diamond industry to develop new sourcing relationships, Council now intends to organize a reverse Indo-Russia Diamond Buyer Seller Meet (BSM) from 3rd – 5th April 2012 at a five-star hotel in SURAT (GUJARAT). This unique 3-day opportunity will be an ideal platform to showcase India’s strength & capabilities in manufacturing world-class diamonds and encourage sourcing of cut & polished diamonds in smaller & bigger sizes. The 3-day tour of India will thrust upon the following:

  • Provide a never before opportunity to decision makers from about 15-25 Russian companies comprising mainly of Wholesalers & Jewellery manufacturers to an all expense paid trip to SURAT and meet with 15 select manufacturers to understand Indian diamond manufacturing, supply chain, business practices and culture.
  • Identify and develop NEW sourcing opportunities and substantially increase direct diamond exports

Council invites members from Diamond Panel to take advantage of this unique opportunity and participate at the subject event as one of the Indian members. Limited opportunities are available as only 15 diamond companies having appropriate capabilities would be eligible to participate at the said BSM. This exclusive platform is envisaged to provide an effective business platform for both communities to engage in meaningful discussion and presents a chance to learn more about the prevailing business culture currently prevalent in Russia/CIS countries.
