While talking to a delegation of Gold Art Promotion Council-Pakistan and Lahore Division Sarafa and Jewellers Association, led by Muhammad Ahmad, Chairman Regional Standing Committee on Gems and Jewellery of the Pakistan Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry, he announced that Smeda has decided to focus afresh gems and jewellery sector. However, the real representatives of this sector will have to shoulder the efforts of Smeda.

He said that Smeda had focused its attention to the gems and jewellery sector as a result of which Pakistan Gems and Jewellery Company was formed. However, it failed to come up to the expectations of the people attached with this industry.
