Two major gemological institutions in India and China have agreed to increase their collaboration in an effort to strengthen trade between the two markets.

China’s state-run National Gem Testing Center (NGTC) has signed a letter of cooperation with the Mumbai-based Gemmological Institute of India (GII), the organizations reported this month. The agreement will enable the groups to exchange gemological expertise, including standards for grading gems and jewelry, the Indian laboratory explained.

“The close collaboration can help both NGTC and GII strengthen and enhance [the] gem-and-jewelry trade between China and India,” GII added.
