one of the fastest growing global economies. An educated and young workforce, a large capital market, and business- friendly ecosystem are some of the key factors that encourage foreign investment and support it in India. India’s gems and jewellery sector has been contributing in a big way to the country’s foreign exchange earnings. Government has viewed this sector as a thrust area for export promotion, and therefore allows 100% foreign direct investment in this sector through the automatic route.
