COUNTRIES WHICH RELY MOST ON ONE COUNTRY TO BUY THEIR EXPORTS

The United States trades with several countries which send most of their exports to the United States, including neighbors Mexico and Canada.

The percentage values represent the percentage of all exports from a given country that goes to the buyer (the country in parentheses). Therefore, the United States buys 87.6% of Mexico's exports.

While the CIA World Factbook lists the United States as purchasing 97.6% of Lesotho's exports in 2003 (the most recent data available), that appears to be an error as in previous years, the South African Customs Union bought more than 50% of Lesotho's exports.

Source of Data: CIA World Factbook, most data from 2003. Only independent nations are listed.
