Firstly I wish to congratulate Nigel and Kathryn on their reelection to the board. I also wish Maggie a happy time as president.
Thank you to all the staff and Gem A members for making me feel welcome both in London and in Hong Kong. Special thanks to ambassador Anne Carroll Marshall. I look forward to the Gem A conference in November. Fingers crossed I can tag it onto the end of the CIBJO conference.
Best regards from Down Under
Excuse the belated reply, just back form GSA Denver. Thanks for the kind words to our newly elected. I am glad you felt welcome in London and it was good to catch up with you in Hong Kong. It was a very good show for us this year with lots of business and 'cementing' of our collaborators, partners and contacts. Looking forward to seeing you soon, we hope you can make the conference this year
