Botswana - Money

Available data paints a mixed picture for Q2, following a solid first-quarter performance that was underpinned by strong domestic demand. In annual terms, bank loans to households and firms, mainly diamond processing companies, grew robustly in Q2, hinting at healthy domestic economic activity. On the external front, although the trade balance improved year-on-year in April–May, significantly lower exports of diamonds—which account for roughly 90% of export receipts—in June likely weighed on the external sector’s contribution to Q2’s growth. Meanwhile, at the conclusion of its Article IV mission on 5 September, the IMF praised the authorities’ macroeconomic management but also encouraged reforms in the civil service and in view of improving the business environment.
