Trade Facilitation and Export Diversification in Botswana Part 2

"This brief reviews the contribution that transportation makes to trade facilitation in Botswana. As a landlocked export driven economy, efficient transport and transit procedures are important to support competitiveness and export growth. Transport costs are particularly important to landlocked countries, where the additional distances to be covered can increase product prices, undermine the competitiveness of exports, and generally make it more difficult to compete in international markets. Section 2 discusses shipping and port efficiency. Section 3 deals with land transportation and its impact on both the export of goods and tourism. Section 4 discusses air transport while section 5 concludes."
