CIBJO President Dr. Gaetano Cavalieri has discussed the development of
the jewellery sector in the Republic of Armenia, with senior officials
of the Armenian government and with the leadership of the Armenian
Jewellers' Association (AJA) during a visit to the country's capital
of Yerevan.

Dr. Cavalieri is in Armenia to attend the 2012 edition of the Yerevan
International Jewellery Show, which opened yesterday and will run
through October 31.

Together with AJA President Gagik Gevorkyan, Dr. Cavalieri met
yesterday with Armenian President Serzh Azati Sargsyan, and today with
the country's Prime Minister, Tigran Sargsyan; Minister of the Economy,
Tigran Davtyan; and Minister of the Diaspora, Hranush Hakobyan. He
pledged CIBJO's support for the growth of the jewellery industry and
market in Armenia.

In a keynote address he delivered at the show, Dr. Cavalieri paid
tribute to the work being done in Armenia by AJA and to the special
contribution being provided by members of the Armenian community in
other parts of the world.

"My congratulations go out to the Armenian Jewellers' Association, and
to the excellent work that they are doing in promoting their industry
internationally, and the jewellery culture in general in their own
country," he said. "As an Italian, I know what is like to like to
be associated jewellery simply by virtue of my nationality. But we
are not alone, of course. The Armenian diaspora is known the world
over in the jewellery community, and over the years I have made many
friends from it, some of whom are here today. I pleased that, finally,
I am able to experience the real Armenia."
