Three-quarters of all 200 territories are net importers of natural products. The landlocked, mountainous Andorra imports (net) over US$600 more natural products per person than its neighbour, France. This difference in imports per person is due to exports from France almost balancing imports. Andorra produces almost no natural products to export.

The Central African Republic, another low net importer, receives low imports and generates low exports of natural products.

"Saudi Arabia has tightened restrictions on trading in wildlife animals in a renewed attempt to ensure protection of rare animal species" M. Ghazanfar Ali Khan, 2004

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net imports of natural products (in US$) that are received there. Net imports are imports minus exports. When exports are larger than imports the territory is not shown.
