About the Country

As well as being known for being one of the world’s largest producers of diamonds, Botswana is also known for having one of the most stable economies in Africa. This stability and good use of its resources has transformed the country from being one of the poorest in the world, upon independence, to a middle income nation. Botswana’s information and communication technology (ICT) sector continues to demonstrate dynamic growth, driven by the mobile sector.
