Botswana’s Minister of Trade and Industry Vincent Seretse on Friday said that the Southern African country is also pursuing access to a West African submarine cable.Speaking at the Global Expo Botswana event hosted in the capital Gaborone, Seretse said that apart from pursuing access to a West African submarine cable, Botswana has invested in the East Africa Submarine Cable System (EASSy), greatly expanding her connectivity capacity to the region.

"The expectation is that over the next 2-3 years there will be expanded, rapid, reliable and cost effective connectivity. This will present a huge opportunity for investment within the ICT sector in Botswana, thus fully exposing the potential of the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry in this country", said Seretse.

The minister added that Government is committed to ensuring that the doing business environment in Botswana is continuously improved.

"Therefore, the Doing Business Reform Roadmap for Botswana is top of the list of high priority areas. The Doing Business Reforms Roadmap is a benchmark of what competitor countries are doing to improve their investment climate", said Seretse.

He said to this end, the reform process is intended to reduce Government bureaucracy, eliminate unfriendly business laws and regulations, improve service delivery, reduce paper work as well as leverage on ICT applications.
