About BITC

The organization plays a critical role in driving Botswana’s economic growth through the attraction of foreign direct investment (FDI), domestic investment, and facilitation of expansions and further spearheads the growth of exports by promoting locally manufactured goods to regional and international markets. It also manages the Nation Brand.

In our effort to become a leading high-performance Investment Promotion Agency, our focus on investment promotion is leveraged on:

  • Research
  • To identify and profile growth sectors
  • To create strategic go-to market value propositions that will attract investors to the country

BITC has put in place an application process that offers a wide range of financial and non-financial incentives to you, the investor, in the form of exemptions and concessions. These exemptions and concessions are issued to companies investing in priority sectors or products as stipulated in the Botswana Excellence Strategy, National Export Strategy, and the Economic Diversification Drive (EDD).

BITC will be the apex Investment and Trade Promotion Agency (ITPA) driving the transformation of Botswana into a globally recognised trade and investment destination.
We innovatively attract investment and facilitate export to stimulate economic diversification and job creation in the country by promoting Botswana as a place to visit, live and invest.
Humility is not self-denigration, but a genuine pride in what one knows and the skills one has. It is an acute awareness of what one does not know and the skills one does not have. The leadership and staff of BITC are open to the ideas of others, and actively solicit others’ opinions and ideas to add to their own. It is a gentle way of asking instead of telling
Agility is to be “change-fit” and open to new ways of working, as and when they are required. It is also openness to new ideas, and if they represent an advance, integrating them into practice.
Curiosity is not merely an openness to new ideas, but a way of actively seeking new ideas, insights and information. It is an insatiable desire to know more about more and more.
Boldness is the drive to innovate and make changes in your sphere of influence. It’s the total resolve to challenge the status quo at an individual and organisational level for the good of all.
