The 2016 CIBJO Congress will open in Yerevan, Armenia on October 26. The congress includes a series of meetings, each focusing on a different sector or field of interest in the jewellery industry. Agendas and related documentation for the meetings and sessions are now available online.
Thailand should position itself as the primary access point to the gemstone and jewellery industries and markets of the ASEAN bloc. That’s the message CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri delivered in Bangkok during his keynote address at a dinner summit organized by the country’s Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP).
An online system supporting the jewellery industry in maintaining an ethical chain of custody is one of the programs highlighted at the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri addressed the gathering—dubbed the High-Level Segment—which is made up of representatives from UN member states, the private sector, civil society, and academia.
Armenia will welcome the industry when it gathers for CIBJO’s 2016 annual Congress. Held at Meridian Expo Centre in Yerevan, the gathering runs from Oct. 26 to 28, with pre-congress meetings scheduled for Oct. 24 and 25.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer an option in today’s business environment, but is instead, a requirement. That’s the message delivered at a seminar held at VicenzaOro. Sponsored by CIBJO and Fiera di Vicenza, the show’s organizer, the panel discussion focused particularly on the coloured gemstone sector.
