Bangladesh to export gold ornaments: BAJUS President Sayem Sobhan Anvir

Bangladesh Jeweller's Association (BAJUS) President Sayem Sobhan Anvir said the country will export gold ornaments.

“Bangladesh no more believes in import. From now, the country’s jewellers will export gold ornaments,” he said.

BAJUS will open a new horizon in export, he said adding that the leaders of the sector have invited Indian investment and technical supports in this regard.

Sayem Sobhan Anvir made the remarks attending as the chief guest a lunch meeting with leaders of Indian jwellery stalwarts at Le Meridien Dhaka on Thursday.

Sayem Sobhan Anvir also said close neighbours India and Bangladesh are two flowers booming in the same stalk. “The people of the two countries share sincere and deep bonds of love. The gap in the 50-year-old jewellery business needs to be bridged by using this relationship. Bangladeshi jewellery traders want to move forward taking India’s experience.”

He urged the Indian delegation to invest in setting up jewellery factories in Bangladesh. “Bangladeshi jewellery traders now want to export gold ornaments abroad. We the jewellery businessmen of the two countries want to work together in this regard.”

Bangladesh’s jewellery traders are now emphasising not only on trading but also industrialisation, the BAJUS President added.

He also called on the jewellery traders to come forward to set up new factories in the industry.

At the banquet, BAJUS President Sayem Sobhan Anvir unveiled the cover of a publication on the upcoming B2B summit titled ‘Sonar Bangla’ to be held in Goa, India on June 28-29.

Members of the visiting Indian jewellery delegation -- KNC Services founder Kranti Nagvekar and ‘Sonar Bangla’ summit convener and HPJ founder Hasmukh Parekh, BAJUS Vice-Presidents Gulzar Ahmed, Anwar Hossain and Badal Chandra Roy and Treasurer Uttam Banik were also present.
