The World Gemological Institute will host its China Market Entrance Event on Feb. 27 at the Shenzhen Airline Hotel China.

Participants will include officials, associates, and leading companies from mainland China and Hong Kong who endorse the launch of WGI at the territory. The event is organized by JPIJ Ltd. China. The keynote speaker at the event will be Rafael Aharoni, WGI’s honorary chairman for Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China.

“We believe that a more educated and knowledgeable consumer is the healthy foundation that our industry needs in order to prosper,” Aharoni said. “We are planning to expand WGI’s affiliation with the Shenzhen area manufacturers and traders to stimulate the trade for the prosperity of the region. The World Gemological Institute is creating new relationships with vendors in a setting that is dedicated to business understanding in order to keep abreast of industry trends.”
    
Yinon Feldheim, WGI’s chief executive officer, added: “We are targeting China as one of our leading priorities. We are happy to start our Chinese market launch at Shenzhen.” “The city of Shenzhen is the center of China’s jewelry manufacturing and the perfect place for international and Chinese buyers and suppliers to do business.”
