A Historic Excursion of Brazil

Updated:2012-11-07 17:42:10
It is well known that Brazil is one of the important stone export country in the worldwide, and if you are planning to do the international stone import and export trade, it would be good for you to realize more about the history excursion. Well, we will share the Brazil for you.

For the building of Brasília and the building boom for hotels, the government set aside important financial aid in the 1950′s. At the same time the government sharply curtailed the import of natural stone with the aim of controlling import deficits.

Particularly in the south of the country, marble stone was being quarried, e.g. Branco Paraná, and used in the construction of government buildings. The state of Rio de Janeiro, too, played an important role in the stone sector of the time, that is, until a provincial law strangled the branch.

Whereas the industry was mainly comprised of expatriate European craftsmen from Italy, Portugal and Spain, it now began to take on shape as a full-fledged industry. The Brazília-project was so big that some stone providers and producers formed a “co-operative”. Readers will remember that along with the announcement that the capital was to be built, its date of completion was also announced, a mere 3 years later in April 1960!

In the ’70′s exhibitors at international trade fairs were discovering that their granite stone was of interest to foreign markets. The centre of production was thus shifted to the province of Espírito Santo, from where 60% of today’s stone exports stem to this day.
