Facets 2019 Chairman’s Message
Sri Lanka is known as one of the world’s most reputed sources for richly coloured gemstones, especially its magnificent sapphires. The Gem & Jewellery industry’s contribution to the economy in terms of foreign exchange earnings and employment generation is extremely valuable.
The Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association has given positive leadership to our industry members by providing clear vision of developing this industry to greater heights by formulating sound development strategies and have established a very strong public sector – private sector partnership as our mission for progress for the larger benefit of Sri Lanka...
SLGJA Chairman's Message
The Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association (SLGJA) was inaugurated in 2003 with the amalgamation of the Sri Lanka Jewellers and Gem Merchants’ Federation (formed in 1970), the Sri Lanka Gem Traders’ Association (formed in 1975), the Sri Lanka Jewellery Manufacturing Exporters Association and the Lapidary Association.
SLGJA, as the apex body of the gem and jewellery industry in Sri Lanka, currently has over 300 members.
My main focus is to further develop the international links we have with similar organizations, worldwide. Toward this end, along with the Executive Committee, I plan on fostering and nurturing the relationships we have with the other international gem buying nations.
