Investing in Botswana

Botswana's economy is still dependent on the mining sector, in particular diamonds, which contributes about a third of the country's GDP. The Government's strategy is to diversify the economy away from the mineral sector, hence an industrial policy geared towards export orientated manufacture. Potential investment opportunities are based on the availability of raw materials locally, or on imported raw materials for processing. The country's young and vibrant economy makes the potential and the choice of opportunities much wider for the prospective investor. The available opportunities include, but are not limited to, the following:

Industries Opportunities
Textile, Garments and accessories Manufacture of various textiles and garments to take advantage f the Contonou Agreement and the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act, which allow entry into the EU andUSAmarket free of duty and quota
Leather products 2 tanneries are currently operating in the country. Opportunities are available in manufacturing leather products like bags, belts and jackets
Glass products Raw material for glass manufacturing are available in abundance - silica sand quartz, quartzite, limestone and soda ash
Information Technology Opportunities are available in call centers ,software development, data capture and processing systems
Jewellery Cutting ,polishing and setting of diamonds and semi-precious stones
Tourism Diversification into ecotourism, cultural, and educational development in other untouched and unspoiled areas
