Botshabelo Mafatlhane has also reiterated that most countries across financial globe would be depending on a sole area of strength for survival as far as export and import were concerned. He said that as far as Botswana is concerned major areas of strength in this respect are beef and diamonds.
Botswana primarily exports beef to a number of countries in Europe. However, of late beef exports of Botswana have been failing to meet required levels as a result of credit shortages in countries that have traditionally been its prominent beef export partners. Botshabelo Mafatlhane also stated that Botswana has been successful to generate a market in USA for textile commodities manufactured by it. It can be expected that this would come in handy in near future.
