GIZ training Afghan jewelers

The German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) has provided trainings to Afghan jewelers and carving industry in reaching the international standards of jewelry making and carving, processing precious stones from Afghanistan mines, standardizing methods of cutting, and using of small and big machines in jewelry and carving crafts.

Those who have completed the training said the programs have been effective.

Other topics covered in the GIZ training are finding markets for products and the financial support of jewelers and engravers.

Dozens of jewelers and carvers in six key centers including in the northern Balkh, Badakhshan, Kunduz provinces and Kabul have been trained according to international standards through the GIZ program in recent years, providing a much-needed boost to the industry.

Presently, most precious and semi-precious stones are sent to neighboring countries for processing, which has resulted in smuggling or selling of the stones at lower prices.

Such programs would assist with keeping the stones in Afghanistan for treatment and processing and ensuring they are sold at higher prices for export.
