Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Surat Diamond Bourse, now recognized as the world’s largest and most modern center for international diamond and jewelry business. The grand opening followed the inauguration of a state-of-the-art integrated terminal building at Surat airport earlier in the day.
Located in Khajod village near Surat city, the Surat Diamond Bourse is housed in a colossal building, boasting over 67 lakh square feet of floor area—the largest office complex globally. This monumental structure will serve as a global hub for the trading of both rough and polished diamonds, as well as exquisite jewelry.
The inauguration marks a significant stride in India’s position in the international diamond and gemstone trade, solidifying Surat’s status as a key player in the industry. The bourse’s strategic location and cutting-edge facilities are set to attract traders and businesses from around the world.
This development aligns with the government’s vision to boost economic growth and promote India as a global leader in the diamond and jewelry sector. The Surat Diamond Bourse is poised to redefine the landscape of international diamond trading, contributing to the nation’s economic prosperity and global influence.
