Angola - Foreign trade





Crude petroleum and products top the commodities export list for Angola (89%), while only accounting for a small percentage of the world's exportation. Diamonds and other precious and semiprecious stones are the second-largest export, and shellfish exports follow. A small amount of natural and manufactured gas is also exported from Angola.

As of 1999, the US was buying up to 75% of Angola's crude oil production.

Principal trading partners in 1998 (in millions of US dollars) were as follows:
