Industry’s “New Normal” – Digital Transformation

The severe coronavirus epidemic and Sino-US trade frictions have dealt a heavy blow to the jewellery, watch and & clock and optical industries.

With the evolution and rapid development of the industries, a consistent supply of manpower is needed. Practitioners are also required to equip themselves with robust industry knowledge and emerging skills so as to cultivate a customer-oriented mindset.

Training Needs in Jewellery and Watch Industries

As Hong Kong enjoys the advantages of a duty-free port, it still remains an important hub for the trading of various gemstone products. Gems identification will become one of the key future directions in the development of jewellery industry. For those industry practitioners who are well equipped with the knowledge of gems identifications (including different products knowledge) as well as testing and certification, they can have more opportunities to further develop in other areas. For watch industry, there is a considerable demand for different aftersales services. Frontlines sales should be well equipped with the knowledge of aftersales services including proper aftersales and consultation services.
