Jewellery Sales Soars by 20% this Diwali - Dhanteras Maharashtra Minister of Industry Uday Samant during his visit to GJEPC and Bharat Diamond Bourse announced that the State has taken a decision to allocate additional land adjacent to the Park for India Jewellery Park workers’ residence. India’s first-ever Jewellery Park in MHAPE (Navi Mumbai), spread over 21 acres is expected to create one lakh new jobs. The World Gold Council’s Q3 Gold Demand Trends report reveals that support for the asset continues as central bank buying maintains a historic pace, bringing quarterly gold demand (excluding OTC) to 1,147t, 8% ahead of its five-year average. According to the World Gold Council’s data series, central banks saw the third strongest quarter of net buying, reaching 337t. Although shy of breaking the Q3 2022 record, year-to-date demand has reached 800t, a new record for our data series. This strong buying streak from central banks is expected to stay on course for the remainder of the year, indicating a robust annual total again in 2023.
