Cambodia sets for first gold jewellery exhibition


Gold items will be on display at the first jewellery exhibition in Cambodia next week. The kingdom is looking at ways of attracting foreign buyers to the show and security at the event will be tight, the Phnom Penh Post reports.

Seun Sotha, director of the ministry of commerce's trade promotion department, told the news source that between 30 and 50 large local jewellery manufacturing and export businesses will be at the event.

"We want our people to make jewellery for the international market, not just the local market," he explained, adding that organisers are encouraging "high-class people and businesspeople" to visit the show.

Taking place at the Hotel InterContinental in Phnom Penh between May 18th and 20th, Cambodian minister of commerce Cham Prasidh is due to open the exhibition.

In related news, this year's Coutts London Jewellery Week will be held from June 8th to 14th this year, showcasing fine gold items from leading designers.
