"This issue of the BIDPA Briefing gives a review of FDI inflows into Botswana which have been largely dominated by investment in manufacturing activity linked to the mining sector. Although investment in the mining sector has earned high rates of return, investment in other sectors of the economy is still minimal, necessitating the Government to strengthen its efforts in attracting investment to other sectors of the economy. The potential impact of the recently introduced VAT in the generation of revenue for the Government is also discussed."
