Which shares borders with Namibia from the north, northwest and west, Zimbabwe from the northeast and east, and South Africa from the east, southeast, south and southwest.

Botswana is a non-mountainous, low and flat country, and 70% of it is located in the Kalahari Desert, and it has one of the lowest densities in terms of population among countries in the world. At the time of its independence from Britain, the Republic of Botswana was considered one of the poorest countries in Africa, but before the 2008 global economic crisis, it had one of the fastest economic growths in the world. The economy of this country relies more on the diamond industry. The currency of Botswana is called pula with the component unit “tebe”. This country is a member of the African Union.

Registering a company or brand name is important because it gives exclusive rights to use the name and is recognized as a legal entity. Companies and registered trade names are an important aspect of the economy because it is a precursor to trade and business. To give your business an identity, you need to register a company or trade name with CIPA. A brand name is a business style, name, title, or description under which a business is conducted. Whereas a corporation is a legal entity that arises when one or more persons form a corporate body that acquires a personality separate from its members with legal powers to sue, or be sued, own property and enter into contracts. A company can register different trade names under it, which means that a company can own a trade name.

The growth of private sector employment during the first 30 years of the country’s independence was about 10 percent per year on average. After a period of stagnation at the start of the 21st century, Botswana’s economy has recorded high levels of growth, with GDP growth exceeding the 6-7% targets. Botswana has been praised by the African Development Bank for maintaining one of the world’s longest economic booms. Economic growth since the late 1960s has matched some of Asia’s largest economies. The government has consistently maintained a budget surplus and has large foreign exchange reserves. Compared to some of its neighbors, Botswana’s impressive economic record has been built on diamond mining, prudent fiscal policies and cautious foreign policy. Botswana’s economy is mostly dependent on diamond mining. Diamond mining accounts for 50% of the government’s revenue, mainly through a 50:50 joint venture with De Beers in the Debswana Diamond Company. Transparency International has considered this country as the least corrupt country in Africa in the corruption perception list.
