Design and implementation of a strategy for the development of Nigeria’s gemstone and jewellery industry

World Bank, 2019 - 2020

The growth of the Nigerian jewellery industry depends on the establishment of a performing institution and the development of skilled workforce in all aspects of jewellery making. At full realization, the local jewellery industry will substantially meet the national insatiable market for quality jewellery products, increase import substitution, create jobs and wealth, and increase export value of Nigeria gemstones and jewellery abroad. As sub-component of the WB-funded MinDiver support program, the project will extensively contribute to the sector’s growth by designing and implementing a development strategy for Nigeria’s gemstone and jewellery industry, and through capacity building in design and jewellery making.
