The group will be led by Gaetano Cavalieri, CIBJO President, and James Courage, RJC Chairman.
As per Cavalieri, Our goal is to address proper business practise in the very broadest sense, and together CIBJO and RJC are able to provide comprehensive solutions.
When CIBJO became officially associated with the United Nations seven years ago, we committed to participating in the economic and social development of the countries in which we have a vested stake," said Dr.
In September 2010, it participated in CSR workshops organised by CIBJO and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), in the UN Pavilion at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China.
The Strategic Task Force will be chaired by Eli Avidar, a member of the CIBJO President's Council and the CEO of the Israel Diamond Institute.
Gaetano Cavalieri said: "As a seasoned diplomat Eli Avidar will be able to bring to CIBJO his considerable experience and contacts in the international diplomatic arena.
With this Task Force, CIBJO will now reach out to new industry participants and demonstrate to members and stakeholders that we stand together, united and committed," said Avidar.
They will be able to rely upon the broad support of the international jewellery community, under the banner of CIBJO," Avidar stated.
Avidar called on CIBJO members to provide names of potential members, both national associations and commercial bodies, who will then be approached by the Strategic Task Force to join CIBJO.
With members from more than 40 countries, CIBJO is an international body that represents the interests of national jewellery and gemstone organisations and commercial bodies operating within the jewellery chain of distribution.
