Export of natural resources

This indicator shows the amount (weight) of natural resources exported to other countries per unit of GDP, in the Nordic region. The types of materials are biomass, metal ores (gross ores), non-metallic minerals, fossil energy and other products. 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. Data covers Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, as well as the European Union (EU28). Exports for the European Union (EU28) are total exports, i.e. including both intra-EU exports and extra-EU exports. For more information on Nordic Statistics: https://www.nordicstatistics.org
