Japan and the Middle East are the regions with the highest net transport and travel imports. This is because, in total, people living in these regions spend more money than they earn on travelling and transporting goods, using services based in other regions. Japan is also the region with the highest per person imports at US$240. Most Western European transport and travel trade is ‘cancelled out’ because some territories are high importers whilst others are high exporters.

Kuwait is the territory with the highest imports of transport and travel services (US$ net) per person. This is three times as much as the second and third highest importers: the United Kingdom and Germany.

"Of course all export companies speak English, so there is no language barrier." Import Advise, 2006

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