More than 6,000 businesspeople active in the field of decorative stones from around the world will take part at the 12th edition of Iran Stone Expo 2019 in early October, an official said.

Some 400 Iranian and foreign companies have announced readiness to take part in the 12th Iran Stone Expo (2019), the head of the Trade Promotion Organization (TPO) of Markazi Province, Mohamamdreza Hajipour, said on Saturday, reported Fars News Agency.

He said that Iran exported about 13 million tons of decorative and facade stones in the last Iranian calendar year (March 21, 2018- March 20, 2019).

Rahmati said on June 18th that Iran exported about $350 million worth of decorative and facade stones during the last Iranian year, putting the annual production of decorative and facade stones at 13 million tons.

Statistics show that the country is home to over 2,000 decorative-stone mines, he said, adding, “Of a sum of 2,000 mines, 1,200 are active in the country.”

He put the annual active production capacity of mines in the country at 30 million tons, so that decorative-stone mines have generated employment opportunities for 380,000 job seekers, directly and indirectly.
