Map: World's Largest Gold Buyers and Producers

Interesting interactive map here of the world's largest gold buyers and producers. Top three gold-producing countries are China, South Africa and Australia; top three gold-consuming countries are India, China and the U.S. Also interesting that Turkey (#4), Vietnam (#8) and Egypt (#9) rank in the top-10 gold-consuming countries.

I know from personal experience that Gold is highly used in India. It is used for gifts primarily. Everyone gives some gold piece of jewelry (no matter how poor they are).
