Description

Douglas K. Hucker, CEO of the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) will be presenting “The Road Back to Burma”, an in-depth presentation of the recent trip to Myanmar by industry leaders. In October 2016, a delegation representing the United States gemstone and jewelry industry traveled to Myanmar to discuss bilateral trade between the two countries with the intent of re-establishing direct lines of commerce between the countries.


The delegation was led by AGTA President Jeffrey Bilgore, AGTA CEO Douglas Hucker, Jewelers of America (JA) President & CEO David J. Bonaparte, and Gemological Institute of America's (GIA) Dr. Jim Shigley. Also joining the delegation were Timothy Haake of Haake/Fetzer, senior counsel to JA, and the Inle Advisory Group, a Myanmar-centric business consulting firm. The delegation met with representatives of the Myanmar government, including members of Parliament and Ministerial delegations, members of Myanmar gemstone industry and local representatives of civil society. The delegation also traveled to Mogok, the famed center of gemstone mining and trade, visiting numerous mines, meeting with various groups of miners and dealers.
