Import of natural resources

This indicator shows how many natural resources each Nordic country imports from other countries per unit of GDP. The types of materials are biomass, metal ores (gross ores), non-metallic minerals and fossil energy. 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 28 EU member countries (EU28) include both intra-EU imports and extra-EU imports.
