Botswana’s GDP growth accelerates in Q4 – stats office

On an annual basis, Gross Domestic Product grew by 6.5 percent after expanding by 1.1 percent in the preceding quarter.  Botswana’s economy is projected to expand at a faster pace in 2018 compared to last year as the mining sector is benefitting from a recovery in the global economy, Finance Minister Kenneth Matambo said in February.
