PIERRES ET MARBRES DE WALLONIE is backed by the Walloon Region (DGO3) and the Walloon Export Agency (AWEX).

Walloon Region – DGO3 (DGARNE) Operational Directorate-General for Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment.

The DGARNE is the outcome of the merger of two previous Directorates, i.e. Agriculture and Natural Resources. Its basic task is the sustainable development of the Walloon Region.

The tasks of the DGARNE concern us in very many aspects of our everyday lives: quality of the air that we breathe, the water we drink, production of the farm produce we eat, quality of our environment, waste management, pollution prevention and control, etc. It is instrumental in raising awareness of the importance of sustainable development among us, as citizens, political decision makers and professionals.

AWEX: The Walloon Foreign Trade and Investment Agency (AWEX) is the department of the Walloon Region in charge of promoting foreign trade and welcoming foreign investors. It was created by decree on 1 April 2004 and results from the merger of the Walloon Export Agency and the Office for Foreign Investors (OFI). The Agency is a public interest organisation. It has legal status, which means, in particular, that it has greater autonomy and greater management flexibility, both of which are important assets in corporate relationships
