Nation is facing an unprecedented crisis and needs the service of organizations and their resources like never before. In such times, the council steps forward to show its solidarity and ardent support towards all the initiatives undertaken by the government of India to fight COVID-19. Under the strong and able leadership of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the government of India has initiated proactively every possible measure to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country. I am hopeful that GJEPC’s contribution towards PM-CARES fund can make a difference to several initiatives undertaken by the Govt. towards relief of COVID-19. The economic situation of our country and that of several industries has taken a severe beating. We have also called upon our members, trade associates, gem & jewelry associations to come forward and donate generously to the PM-CARES Fund.” Related Topics: COVID-19GJEPC click to Comment(Comment) Up Next The Plumb Club to Host Industry Town Hall/Roundtable Don't Miss AGTA Cancels GemFair Las Vegas Continue Reading Advertisement SPONSORED VIDEO Wilkerson Testimonials After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different.
