An international gems expo is scheduled to be hosted in Mandalay next year, according to U Thein Win, Secretary of Mandalay Yadanar Mall Gems Entrepreneurs Development Committee.
The aim of the event is to penetrate the international market through the exhibition of Myanmar’s gems. “Our intention is to showcase Myanmar’s products to others,” he added. The expo will be held at Yadanar Mall in Mandalay in 2019. The finished jade products, pearl, amber and jewellery will be displayed at the expo, the first of its kind in Mandalay.
“Myanmar gems entrepreneurs used to take part in gems emporiums held in other countries. They realised how much gems are booming in the international market,” said Ma Lun Lun, a gems entrepreneur from Mandalay. The Yadanar Mall, consisting of over 380 stalls, was launched on 1 January 2017.—Thurein/MDN
