Our motherland has been rich in natural resources since ancient times. I consider it a privilege of yours and mine to live in such a country. Western nations look up to our homeland for its natural resources, natural beauty, antiquities, and high culture.
We have more precious gems on earth than in any other country in the world. It is a fact that we know that there has been a huge demand for gems in our motherland since ancient times. Moreover, they are very popular all over the world.
It is the duty of each and every one of us to develop our country’s gems and jewellery industry so that they can invade the local as well as foreign markets. I highly appreciate the efforts being made by the Gem and Jewellery Authority to make a tremendous contribution to the national economy in line with the Prosperity Vision Policy Statement.
I wish the National Gem and Jewellery Authority the strength and courage to continue towards their production targets and make a significant contribution to the national economy of the country.
