The Authority, to achieve the goals, also organizes Expo Pakistan every year in which around fifteen to twenty jewellery firms participate every year.

As reported by Provincial government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the annual income generated from precious stones is more than seventeen million rupees.
