Botswana - GDP

The economy has remained in a good way over the course of 2017 so far, helped in large part by better than expected diamond-related revenues (diamonds account for 80% of the country’s exports). However, this only served to highlight once more the country’s overreliance on the diamond trade, evidence which S&P used to justify keeping its rating and negative outlook unchanged in late April. The economy is still vulnerable to swings in the international diamond market. Nevertheless, the IMF took a more positive view of the state of the Botswanan economy in its Article IV review, concluded in mid-May. The Fund commended the government’s strong fiscal framework and reform efforts to date, as well as the Central Bank’s FX and monetary policy. It also stressed the importance of continued structural reforms and of improving the efficiency of public spending.
