"I feel privileged and energized to return to the role of GJEPC chairman in these exciting times." "There are tremendous opportunities for growth ahead of us."

The Vice Chairman Who Will Assist In The Organization Of GJEPC

Kirit Bhansali of Smital Gems was chosen to be the vice chairman of GJEPC for the next two years.

Bhansali said:

“I am honored to get the opportunity to serve the industry as vice chairman of this great organization built with years of toil by my predecessors,” “The steadfast government support towards infrastructure development projects like the state-of-the-art Mega CFC in SEEPZ and the upcoming world-class India Jewelry Park Mumbai will nurture an export-friendly ecosystem that underpins the industry’s growth ambitions.”

The Santacruz Electronic Export Processing Zone (SEEPZ) is a special economic zone in Mumbai that is currently home to two new projects: the building of a mega common facility center to support the design and manufacturing of gem and jewelry products and the building of standard design factories that will be ready to go by May 2023.
