The PP highlights the Andalusian Government’s efforts to consolidate the natural stone and marble sector.

Espinosa is grateful that the Junta is starting with the natural stone and marble industry of Macael in its plans to consolidate the Andalusian industry.

The Andalusian MP for the Partido Popular of Almeria, Rosalía Espinosa, has highlighted the boost that the Government of Juanma Moreno is giving to the natural stone and marble sector after recently committing to develop, within the Plan Crece Industria, a specific one for this sector, as explained today by the Minister of Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities, Rogelio Velasco.

In the Andalusian Parliament, Rosalía Espinosa thanked the Junta for starting with the marble industry in the consolidation plans of the Regional Ministry of Economy and that these plans will be developed with the participation of the various social agents of the region, including the Association of Marble Entrepreneurs.

This Plan will help to consolidate companies in the Marble region (Macael, Olula del Río, Fines, Cantoria, Líjar and Purchena, as well as Albanchez, Albox, Arboleas, Chercos, Cóbdar, Laroya, Lubrín and Zurgena), to generate jobs and to consolidate the population in these municipalities.

Rosalía Espinosa recalled that Andalusian industry has 33,560 companies, representing 10% of GDP and 9% of employment in our community, figures that are still far from the Spanish average, which is why she described as a “great success” the development of this Plan aimed at an eminently industrial area of our province.

According to the PP MP, this initiative demonstrates that “Almeria counts for the Junta de Andalucía and for an Andalusian Government that recognises the enormous potential of the natural stone and marble industry in Almeria”.

“To talk about natural stone you have to look to the east of Andalusia and the marble region, to its ‘white Macael’, to the 14 towns that make it up and to the 250 companies dedicated to the carving or extraction of marble that are a true international centre for the transformation of natural stone and compact surface”, he said.

Among them, Espinosa made special reference to the Cosentino group, a generator of employment and wealth in the area, and which, as an ambassador for our province, has put Almería and the Marble Region on the world map.

“All these companies installed in the Marble Region create employment, contribute to exports, raise the Andalusian GDP and are also present throughout Andalusia through that applause of ‘white Macael’ tribute to the work and care that our health workers have offered us during the pandemic,” he said.

Finally, he pointed out that “the region and its people deserve the support they are receiving from the Government of Juanma Moreno and we are pleased that the Junta has recognised the full potential of this fundamental industry for our province”.
