Botswana - GDP

Last year’s momentum appeared to wane in the first quarter amid external-sector volatility. On the heels of an upbeat, extractives-led outturn in the fourth quarter of 2018, available first-quarter data points to shakier external demand and precarious diamond sales, which make up nine-tenths of all exports. Domestic demand, on the other hand, appeared to remain buoyant on low inflation and despite the weaker pula. Moreover, private-sector lending was upbeat through March. In recent weeks, all eyes turned to tourism after the government ended its elephant-hunting ban; analysts are split over how the rollback will affect a burgeoning mainstay of the economy.
