Solitaire - - COVER STORY -

The Depart­ment of In­ter­na­tional Trade Pro­mo­tion (DITP), which pro­motes gems and jew­ellery ex­port from Thai­land, or­gan­ised a road show in JCK Las Ve­gas to in­tro­duce the 62nd Bangkok Gems & Jew­elry Fair that will take place from Septem­ber 7th-11th, 2018. Some 50 Thai com­pa­nies and brands took part in the pro­mo­tional cam­paign to dis­play their gems and jew­ellery prod­ucts. Some of the com­pa­nies that had been in­vited to join the road show were Thai Silp, V&P Jew­ellery, Vatana Gems, Craft Art, Pranda Jew­elry, Ariha and Nida Fac­tory. Kwanapa Phivnil, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Thai Trade Cen­ter, Los An­ge­les re­vealed that the over­all econ­omy in US has been ex­hibit­ing signs of im­prove­ment since 2017 with con­tin­ued growth. The Thai Trade Cen­ter in Los An­ge­les is high­light­ing three Thai prod­uct groups that have strong de­mand in the US: Food, Fash­ion in­clud­ing cloth­ing and jew­ellery, and En­ter­tain­ment and Film. “The over­seas of­fice is fo­cus­ing on gems and jew­ellery prod­ucts which is one of the fash­ion prod­uct cat­e­gories that play a huge part in ex­ports from Thai­land. The US mar­ket im­ports $59 bil­lion-worth of jew­ellery an­nu­ally, with Thai­land ac­count­ing for $1,288 mil­lion, or only 2.2% of the to­tal fig­ure. On the other hand, Thai­land is the coun­try with the 13th high­est im­ports of gems and jew­ellery prod­ucts from the US,” Phivnil added.
