Domestic and International Events

  • India’s exports of cut and polished diamonds in 2023/24 experienced a significant decline of 27.5% compared to the previous year, totaling $15.97 billion. This downturn was attributed to sluggish demand from key markets including the United States, China, and the United Arab Emirates, as reported by a prominent trade body on Monday. Consequently, the decline in exports compelled the world’s largest diamond polisher to reduce imports of rough diamonds by 18% from the previous year, amounting to $14.27 billion in the fiscal year ending March 31, according to the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC).
  • Japan’s manufacturing sector witnessed contraction but approached the neutral point in April. The au Jibun Bank flash Japan Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) increased to 49.9 in April from 48.2 in March, as reported by Reuters.
