Import of natural resources

This indicator shows how the amount (weight) of natural resources imported from other countries per unit of GDP. Data is available for Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, as well as the European Union (EU28). The types of materials are biomass, metal ores (gross ores), non-metallic minerals, fossil energy and other products. The imports 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. Imports for the European Union (EU28) include both intra-EU imports and extra-EU imports.
