Welcome to the Ministry of Trade and Industry's Website.
The Ministry of Trade and Industry's (MTI) mandate is to provide a conducive environment for growing the economy and creating wealth through investment, industrialization, economic diversification and trade. In this regard, MTI aims to achieve a high standard of living and prosperity for all.
Botswana has a stable and democratic political environment, rule of law, and a favorable regulator environment for business.
Economic Diversification Drive (EDD) is a national strategy aimed at accelerating diversification of the economy through the development of globally competitive enterprises. EDD is two-pronged: first, is the Short-Term strategy which is based on Government interventions, and second, is the Medium-to-Long Term Strategy that envisages development of globally competitive enterprises that need little or no Government support.
