Business environment in Botswana

With its stable political system and excellent operational environment, Botswana is a key market for investors. The country’s diamond wealth continues to stabilize the tax system, allowing the government to invest the proceeds into infrastructure, a skilled workforce, health care and higher standard of living. But it lacks economic diversification. The government is striving to diversify the economy, particularly in manufacturing, cattle farming and tourism. Canada has a well-established, bilateral trade relationship with Botswana.
