Malabar Group Chairman, M.P Ahammed said: “This is a proud moment for us as the first Indian International jewellery retailer to begin operations in Australia. We have been a strong proponent of the Indian Government mandate ‘Make in India; Market to the World’. Showcasing the artistry of Indian jewellery on a global stage and expanding into Australia is testimony to our commitment to this initiative. This is also a great success story leveraging the strong trade relationship and recent bilateral free trade agreement between Australia and India. Our growth plan in Australia will lead to significant investments into jobs and the local economy in Australia over the next few years. I am grateful to our customers, management team members, shareholders, and other stakeholders for helping us move one step closer towards our goal of being crowned as the world’s number one jewellery retailer.”

Mr. Shamlal Ahamed, MD-International Operations, Malabar Gold & Diamonds said: “We are extremely excited to begin operations in Australia.

With our time-tested commitment towards providing customers with an exceptional and transparent jewellery shopping experience, I am confident Australia will love our brand.”
