Whether it’s gold, radioactive chemicals or hard liquor, this map shows you nearly every country’s biggest export. Some may surprise you!
Concentrated milk from New Zealand, grapes from Afghanistan and fish fillets from the Maldives – foodstuffs are among the most unusual items that make for nations’ biggest exports around the world.
Cars and fuel are among Europe’s biggest exports. France trades in planes, helicopters and even spacecrafts! Who’d have guessed that gold and medicine would be the UK and Ireland’s most exported goods, or that Finland specialises in Kaolin coated paper (which gives it a glossy, smooth finish)?
Africa mostly exports metals, minerals and organic goods such as gold, iron ore, petroleum, coffee, tea and cacao beans. Benin breaks the mould, dealing mainly in raw cotton, as does Niger which exports huge quantities of radioactive chemicals.
Asia supplies the world’s electronics, computers and circuit boards, while Indonesia’s biggest export is electrical energy. Cambodia exports knit sweaters more than anything else. Simply amazing!
Central and South America has an unusual variety of exports, not least of all knit t-shirts from El Salvador and soybeans from Brazil.
Both Canada and the United States deal mainly in petroleum, while Greenland’s biggest export is, yep you guessed it…non-fillet frozen fish.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
