Botswana

The Cumberland Hotel in Lobatse is one of Botswana's longest standing landmarks. Botswana is one of Africa's fastest growing economies. It goes without saying that this land has fast grown to be a goldmine as far as many investment opportunities are concerned.

Botswana, a republic in southern Africa, a landlocked country, bounded on the north and west by Namibia, on the northeast by Zambia and Zimbabwe, and on the southeast and south by South Africa. The total area of Botswana is 600,372 sq km (231,805 sq mi). Gaborone, the capital city, is the main center of business in Botswana. This is where the head quarters of many companies can be found. Other towns that also serve as industrial towns are Orapa, Selebi-Phikwe, Lobatse, Jwaneng and Francistown.

Although, rapid growth of the business sector in the extreme northern parts of the country in the past few years has brought with it a major dilemma in being able to conduct business efficiently. This is more clearly seen in the government sector as government officials from as far as Maun approximately 1000km from the capital city have to, on a constant basis, travel to Gaborone to carry out a task that he or she could otherwise accomplish were his or her department based in Maun.

To overcome this problem, plans of moving the central business province to the area surrounding Mahalapye - Palapye, the approximate central point between the North and South of Botswana, are in the pipeline. This move is expected to increase efficiency and aid productivity and in so doing bridge the gap between businesses and companies from all nautical points in Botswana to create one whole, well oiled, fine tuned business industry.
