Inflation in Botswana

Botswana Inflation | Economic News & Forecasts

Botswana - Inflation

Momentum appeared to wane somewhat through last year-end as the economy reckoned with an increasingly challenging backdrop. On the heels of a third-quarter outturn (Q3 2018: +4.2% year-on-year) hurt by mining output, weak diamond sales through December suggest that a mainstay of the economy could be facing external headwinds. On the other hand, tourism—another mainstay—has been thriving despite recent conservation-policy hiccups. Domestic demand, meanwhile, looks to have cooled in recent months amid a pullback in private-sector lending and higher inflation.
