Israeli Diamond Industry Participation Up for Hong Kong Show

The Israel Diamond Pavilion at the Hong Kong International
Jewellery Show, held March 4–8, will feature 61 companies with 20 more Israeli
companies exhibiting at various locations throughout the show.

Hong Kong is Israel’s second largest market for polished diamonds,
representing 25 percent of total polished diamond exports in 2010.

“China has evolved into an independent market for luxury
goods and jewelry, with a great amount of wealth being created,” IDI managing
director Eli Avidar said in a statement.

“In the coming years we believe that China will become an
important consumer of polished diamonds, and we are focusing our marketing
strategy on developing this as well as other markets.

The Israeli Diamond Industry’s information booth at the show
will provide background on the industry and will help buyers find their
way through the pavilion. Buyers can virtually visit the pavilion before the
show here.
