NBC discusses review of policies

Botswana’s archaic regulatory framework and policies were once again under the spotlight at the 15th National Business Conference held at Adansonia Hotel in Francistown.

Held under the theme: ‘Breakthrough to a high income Botswana: the role of the private sector in charting the course’, delegates called for a review of policies to allow business to thrive.

In his welcome remarks at Monday’s opening ceremony, Business Botswana President Gobusamang Keebine explained the theme recognises that high income economies as espoused in Vision 2036 invariably provide greater employment opportunities.

Keebine believes the key to a Higher Income Botswana lies in employee engagement that will drive discretional effort in every sector, both public and private, as well as improving the country’s competiveness in the global market.

He further urged industry players to be ‘trail blazers’ to patriotism and corporate responsibility to ensure they bend the arch of leadership towards inclusion and engagement.

“Regulations and policy are currently not advised to turn the wheels. Let us confidently look into regulations and policies that increase harmony by allowing economic power to be for all, so that we do not undermine human freedom to dream!”
