Interest Rate in Botswana
Botswana - Interest RateRelatively weak momentum seemed to have persisted in the final stretch of 2018, after growth slowed to a one-year low in the third quarter due to a contraction in mining output. Growth of bank lending to households moderated in October–November compared to the Q3 average which, coupled with higher inflationary pressures in Q4, likely dragged on consumer spending gains. On the external front, merchandise exports plunged in November due to significantly lower shipments of diamonds, which led to the largest monthly trade deficit in over six years. This follows similarly disappointing trade metrics in October, suggesting that the external sector may have weighed on overall activity in Q4.
