The Turkish Jewellery Exporters’ Association (JTR) is aiming to further expand Turkey’s market reach in Asia, Europe and North America with the participation of 21 major companies at the Turkish Pavilion of the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.

According to JTR’s Fatih Saricaoglu, the pavilion is home to 11 gold and diamond jewellery manufacturers, and 10 mounting companies. There are also eight other Turkish companies participating in the show.

“All the mounting companies are at the concourse of Hall 3. This is a new location. So far, our exhibitors are doing good business and results of the first day were promising,” said Saricaoglu. “This is the only jewellery mounting aisle so whoever is looking for these products and services have to come here. This is a more strategic place for us.”
