The continuous recognition as a success story for AGOA (African Growth Opportunity Act) which facilitates trade between the United States and Zambia has truly been a milestone worth celebrating.
Our Africa Growth Opportunity Act (AGOA) Success Story
We are truly honoured to be recognised as a success story for AGOA (African Growth Opportunity Act) which facilitates trade between the United States and Zambia. Through this Statutory Instrument, Jewel of Africa has been effectively showcasing Zambian skills and know-how by exporting gemstones and beautifully hand-crafted jewellery made in Zambia by Zambians. Our Head Gemologist Rashmi Sharma sat down with the First Lady of Zambia, Mrs. Esther Lungu, to share the know-how of gems.
On June 14, 2018, we displayed at the Southern Africa Trade and Investment Hub under the theme, “Increasing Opportunities to Trade and Invest” where our Marketing and Operations Manager, Sandra Kasaby, interacted with the Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry, Mr. Christopher Yaluma, the Permanent Secretary Mrs. Kayula Siame, and U.S. Ambassador to Zambia, Mr. Daniel Foote.
In May, we visited KAGEM, the world’s single largest coloured gemstone mine in Lufwanyama, Zambia
