Export of natural resources

This indicator shows how many natural resources each of the Nordic countries exports to other countries per unit of GDP. The types of materials are biomass, metal ores (gross ores), non-metallic minerals and fossil energy. The exports of products are measured in thousand tonnes and are compared to GDP in million euros (current prices) in order to be expressed in kilos per euro GDP. The indicator is therefore affected by the exchange rate between national currencies and euros. Exports for the 28 EU member countries (EU28) are total exports, i.e. including both intra-EU exports and extra-EU exports. For more information:
