The Monitor :: Conference woos investors to Botswana








Audra Wilson-Max, CEO and founder of Brand Africa Global and african.iam is bringing leading businesses from around the world to Botswana to exploit the Southern African market through the country's central position, political stability, and investor friendly climate.

The conference that kicks-off at the end of October at the GICC brings together industry leaders in the mining, finance, insurance, agriculture and destination (travel and tourism). "Working with an inaugural set of local stakeholders from each of these sectors, we have developed a programme of national and regional objectives.

The event has attracted a line-up of international keynote speakers and panelists that will contextualise and stimulate the opportunities in each of these sectors," Wilson-Max explained.

He said that on day one, 28 October, they will have the african.iam launch, a black tie gala dinner affair. On day two, african.iam will present the Botswana 200 Business Assembly. It concludes with an african.iam show.

Wilson-Marx said Botswana is best placed to host the conference because it presents a proud example of a place that can be competitively 'held up' as the best.

Since independence, Botswana has had the highest average economic growth rate in the world. It is one of Africa's most stable countries and the continent's longest continuous multi-party democracy. It protects some of Africa's largest wilderness areas.

Botswana's impressive economic record has been built on a foundation of diamond mining, prudent fiscal policies, and a cautious foreign policy. The country is rated the least corrupt in Africa.
