According to Charles Brewer, DHL managing director, in addition to its seven service points in the country, the company is targeting to have at least 40 service points in Botswana and this involves the contribution of SMEs.Brewer explained that they are still negotiating with relevant stakeholders such as postal services and individual service providers in major towns and villages; adding that they have already signed nine deals. 

Briefing the media on Friday, Brewer said DHL sees Botswana as a strategic business hub in Africa driven by the small and medium enterprises (SMEs). "Despite the current global economic uncertainty, DHL expects the African region to deliver," said Brewer. He described Botswana as an attractive market for DHL as its stable economic growth rate makes it a viable country for global investment.
