The arrival of a major international show such as JCK in Delhi represents a massive vote of confidence in the Indian market from the international jewelry community.” said Mr. Rajan Sharma, Managing Director, Inter Ads Ltd. “With the opening up of both the economy and society to ever more international influences, JCK New Delhi 2006 will be a unique opportunity for Indian retailers to see many of the major international suppliers together under one roof.”
