External Debt in Botswana

Botswana External Debt | Economic News & Forecasts

Botswana - External Debt

The economy likely remained downbeat in the third quarter, after GDP plunged in the second quarter as Covid-19 slammed activity. Exports of rough diamonds, which account for around a third of government revenues, contracted by more than two thirds year-on-year in Q3 amid still-frail demand. Moreover, household credit growth weakened in July and August, which is set to have weighed on private consumption. Meanwhile, turning to Q4, in a bid to revive the tourism sector—the country’s second most important foreign exchange earner—the authorities started a phased reopening of borders, allowing air travel to resume gradually from 9 November. In other news, in mid-October, the government approached the World Bank, seeking budgetary support to help cover falling revenues due to the coronavirus health crisis.
