Botswana - GDP

GDP growth in Botswana soared to a two-year high in the third quarter of last year, according to a first estimate released by the Statistics Institute in late December. The acceleration was underpinned by strong private consumption and fixed investment growth, offsetting a small contraction in government consumption. The result partly corroborates the Central Bank’s H2 2016 Business Expectations Survey published in January, in which business confidence was up by seven percentage points from the H1 2016 survey. In January, the government introduced a further tool to spur growth with an over USD 50 million community-focused development fund, which will be evenly distributed among the country’s 57 communities.
