Assessment of Botswana’s Services Sector A Study for the BTPP/BIDPA
"This report provides an assessment of Botswana’s services sector with the aim to identify possible options, in particular in the case of ongoing regional and multilateral services trade negotiations, to support further exports of services from Botswana. Botswana has experienced one of the most impressive growth rates in the world over the last few decades, but this has been dependent on a few sectors, mining in particular. There have been long standing challenges to diversify the economy into new areas, including tourism, international financial services or professional services. This study examines the services sector in Botswana generally by identifying key constraints to diversifying into and stimulate further trade in services, distinguishing between supply side, regulatory and external (e.g. regional) constraints."
