The Saudi share of the Middle East jewelry market is 35 percent. By bringing together Fiera di Vicenza and gold dealers, investors, importers and designers in Saudi Arabia and acquainting them with this exhibition, this is yet another indicator of L’azurde’s successful role in building bridges of interaction between Italian companies and the Saudi gold market.”
