Botswana

Botswana, a landlocked country in Southern Africa, has a landscape defined by the Kalahari Desert and the Okavango Delta, which becomes a lush animal habitat during the seasonal floods.

The economy of Botswana is currently one of the world’s fastest growing economies, averaging about 5% per annum over the past decade. Growth in private sector employment averaged about 10% per annum during the first 30 years of the country’s independence. After a period of stagnation at the turn of the 21st century, Botswana’s economy registered strong levels of growth, with GDP growth exceeding 6-7% targets. Botswana has been praised by the African Development Bank for sustaining one of the world’s longest economic booms. Economic growth since the late 1960s has been on par with some of Asia’s largest economies. The government has consistently maintained budget surpluses and has extensive foreign-exchange reserves.

Botswana has a dual legal system; that is the received law: Roman Dutch Law existing side by side with Customary Law. This is not dissimilar to other former colonies. During colonial times, Botswana had both foreign inhabitants living side by side with the indigenous people of the country.
