  • Companies in the national stone sector will be able to join PEIEX-ES

On the eve of the official launch of the Export Qualification Program (PEIEX), of the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil), in Espírito Santo, the industries of the stone sector participated in a preliminary presentation of the project that will be conducted by the Federation of Industries of Espírito Santo (Findes). In addition to Espírito Santo companies from various segments, PEIEX-ES will be open to the adhesion of companies in the stone sector from all over Brazil.

The novelty happens due to the partnership signed with Centro Brasileiro dos Exportadores de Pedras Ornamentais (Centrorochas), a partner entity of ApexBrasil in conducting It’s Natural – Brazilian Natural Stone, a sectoral project to promote Brazilian natural stones abroad, and the Sindicato das Indústrias of Ornamental Stones, Lime and Limestones of the State (Sindirochas).

PEIEX is a training and guidance program for those who want to start or even evolve in relation to exports. Held virtually on March 22, the event detailed the concepts and scope of the program that is offered for companies to start the export process in a planned and safe way. Details on how to participate and the schedule of activities for subscribers will be announced at the program’s launch event, scheduled to take place in May of this year.

During the meeting with the industries of the stone sector, the manager of It’s Natural, Rogério Ribeiro, presented the objectives and actions of the sectorial project for the promotion of Brazilian natural stones abroad. “Subscribing to It’s Natural is free and requires just two basic steps: signing a membership term and returning to the segmentation questionnaire, which will determine the maturity of the company in terms of its experience in the international market. This will help us to propose actions according to the profile of each supported company”, he explained. The process begins after completing an initial form, available here.
