These Maps Show Every Country's Most Valuable Exports

May 21, 2014

Ever wonder what exports ultimately bring in the most money around the world? For many countries, it's obviously oil, but for others, commodities ranging from soybeans to opium to diamonds bring in the most cash.

To visualize this information, GlobalPost gathered data from the CIA Factbook to determine each nation's highest valued export, and then created a series of maps.

See the results broken down by region:

Europe Asia Africa Middle east & Central asia South American North America

CORRECTION: This map incorrectly identifies Mexico's most valuable export. It is manufactured goods.
