Botswana - Fiscal Balance

Botswana’s economy appeared to lose momentum in the first quarter, on the heels of an upbeat, extractives-led outturn in the fourth quarter of 2018. Available data for the first quarter suggests a significant deterioration on the external front; merchandise exports, for example, slumped in January and February on falling diamond sales. On the upside, however, domestic demand looks to have remained buoyant amid lower inflation and a stable pula; private-sector lending, for example, was robust through February.
