        More than 2,300 exhibitors from 46 countries and regions, a new exhibitor record, are taking part in the 26th annual Hong Kong International Jewelry Show, which kicked off Wednesday at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.

        The fair, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), continues through March 8, and includes the International Jewelry Design Excellence (IJDE) Award presentation gala.

        "We at the HKTDC are working hard to develop business opportunities in emerging markets and to enhance Hong Kong's role as Asia's major sourcing and distribution center," said Lawrence Ma, chairman of the Hong Kong Jewelry Advisory Committee and the Fair Organizing Committee, at the opening ceremony.
