In the Table we observe the large increase in marble exports in both comparative periods. The countries – destinations that led to the increase in marble exports are China with blocks and slabs and the USA. with the finished products.

The increase in granite exports is due to the increase in exports of finished products  to European countries, such as Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Poland.

The increase in ceramics is due to the countries of Europe, France, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, but also the USA.
