Botswana’s GDP slows to 3.5% in 2019 – IMF


Botswana’s economic growth will slow to about 3.5% in 2019 from 4.5% in 2018, before speeding up to around 4.2% in 2020.

this will be an inevitable reality if the southern African nation can shake-off the effects of weak diamond exports and drought. This analysis was given by IMF (International Monetary Fund).

“The outlook is subject to significant downside risks, including a global rise in protectionism, a faster-than-anticipated slowdown in China and in the euro area, and continued slow growth in South Africa,” said the International Monetary Fund in a statement.
