The programme in which 30 Batswana from various sectors of the economy and government participated, was aimed at giving inter alia, an overview of international business, modes of international business expansion and the impact of globalisation and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in Botswana.

A collaboration between the Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry, the programme is a sequel to the April 2008 India-Africa Summit, at which a decision to develop capacity in African countries was made.

Chairperson of Management Development Programmes at IIFT, Dr Rakesh Mohan Joshi, who also led the training team, said exporters from Botswana should try hard to improve productivity and product competitiveness in order to meet the global market demands. He said this is only attainable through value addition as opposed to exportation of commodities as this results in tremendous economic gains by importing countries.

"The global economic

environment across the world has witnessed unprecedented changes during the recent times that have metamorphosed the very approach of doing businesses for corporates and the governments," he said.

The training programme has been hailed as  essential for it provided participants with "the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in international markets".

Joshi, from the responsiveness of participants, believes conceptual understanding of international business has been imparted into Botswana.

Participants commended the course for equipping them with professional skills to take strategic decisions and explore new opportunities in international business for Botswana.

The exercise is the third of its kind to be offered in Africa, after Ethiopia and Egypt earlier this year. Rated one of the world's leading schools in the area of international business, IIFT was set up in 1963.

The institute is involved in conducting management development programmes, research and education in the area of international business.
