Current Account in Botswana
Botswana - Current AccountAvailable indicators suggest economic activity remained upbeat in the third quarter, following a strong expansion in the second quarter propelled by the trade and financial services sectors. Credit to businesses, particularly in the construction and trade industries, accelerated in Q3 compared to Q2. This, together with steady bank lending to households and moderating inflation, which bode well for consumer spending, point to continued strength of private sector activity in the quarter. On the external front, buoyant growth of diamond exports in Q3—largely reflecting a bounce-back of sales in September amid multi-year high prices for the mineral—also likely contributed to overall growth in the quarter.
