“We are excited about the positive results obtained by the stone industry so far. Since January, we have participated in four major actions through It’s Natural – Brazilian Natural Stone, a program to promote exports developed by Centrorochas and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil).
