Transport services are the movement of goods and people by air, sea and land. It is because transport services cost money that imports have higher values than exports worldwide - the transport costs are included in the import price.

Travel services mainly include the services and goods that are sold to tourists who visit a place. This might include a guided tour and some postcards. Exports are linked to tourist numbers, but also to the prices that tourists are charged.

Together, transport and travel services constitute 13.2% of all international exports of goods.

"Ranging from architecture to voice-mail telecommunications and to space transport, services are the largest and most dynamic component of both developed and developing country economies." World Trade Organisation, 2006

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports of transport and travel services (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
