The new gemstone and jewellery market opens this months.
According to the Myanmar Gems and Jewelry Entrepreneurs Association, a new market for gemstones and jewelry will open this year. It is housed in the jewelry show room on the grounds of the Myanmar Gems Museum in Yangon. This new market is the latest addition to the sector, following the introduction of additional stores in Naypyitaw and Mandalay.
It aims to create an exlusive place for trade in Yangon jad and gemstones, the federation said. "We' ve been inviting companies and there will be over 40 shops when the market opens in October with an official opening ceremony," said U Tun Hla Aung, the association's common secretary.
Dealers have been encouraged to set up shops since early 2014 and a commission has been set up to monitor the distribution of retailing area. Further shops will also be opened in the gemstone display room of Myanmar Ves Joint Venture Co, next to the Myanmar Gems Museum. Following the recent postponement on the board of the Myanmar Gems and Jewelry Entrepreneurs Association, the new president, U Yone Mu, announces the commencement of trade with the United States.
The reopening of coal mines in the state of Kachin in September, due to an ongoing military dispute, is expected to increase the trade in jad.
