• HK manufacturers target growing markets. Hong Kong’s fine jewellery exports recorded a year-on-year increase of 34.6 percent to approximately $3.6 billion in the first eight months of 2011, according to data provided by the Hong Kong Trade Statistics, Census & Statistics Department. The substantial increase in fine jewellery exports during the January-August period reflected the industry’s recovery from serious losses caused by the global financial crisis of 2008, Ricky Lam, chairman of the Hong Kong Jewelry Manufacturers’ Association, told JNA. The US remained the No.1 market for Hong Kong’s fine jewellery, accounting for nearly a third of its total exports or around $1.2 billion in value terms. “The US is the most important export market for Hong Kong jewellery manufacturers. I can say that most of our members, almost everyone, have business ties with the US to a certain extent,” Lam said.
