"Botswana Country Risk Report Q1 2016" is now available at Fast Market Research

Economic growth in Botswana will remain relatively healthy over the coming years, averaging around 4.6% annually. Even so, growth will continue to be dominated by the mining sector, as economic diversification efforts continue to bear little fruit .

Lower fuel and food prices and continued slack within the economy will allow the Bank of Botswana to keep monetary policy accommodative through the remainder of 2015.

In the continued absence of meaningful economic diversification, the mining sector s set to remain a key engine of growth. While nickel, copper and particularly coal will become more prominent in the country's export base, as well as driving investment, diamonds will retain their primacy.

We expect a return to the political status quo in Botswana in 2015 and 2016, following escalating tensions in the run up to the October 2014 general elections.

Key Risks To Outlook:

We continue to note the risks to our forecasts posed by ongoing revisions to Botswana's national accounts estimates. Amid ongoing efforts by Statistics Botswana to more accurately portray the size and structure of the economy, GDP estimates remain subject to frequent and often notable adjustments.

Given Botswana's dependence on imported energy and food any unexpected rise in global food or oil prices beyond our current projections, would pose a risk to our growth outlook.

Uncertain energy supplies pose a persistent risk to economic activity in Botswana.
