The Rise of Africa’s outlier – Botswana has developed a reputation as Africa’s leading destination that offers a predictable and secure environment for investments and business.

The Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the European Union, of which Finland is a member, and the SADC/EPA countries, of which Botswana is a member, presents itself as an opportunity to increase trade and investment between the two countries and contribute towards sustainable development and diversification of the Botswanan economy.
