EXPOPEDIA2018 BOTSWANA Botswana is the world’s largest producer of diamonds and, by carefully managing their diamond reserves, Botswana has managed to become one of the most stable and wealthiest countries, especially in terms of human development and quality of life, in sub-Saharan Africa. The country is also home to the second largest coal deposits on the African continent. Botswana has since constructed a railway line to further enh ance its coal assets and its coal resources are suitable for low cost open cast mining. The extracted coal resources support Botswana’s domestic power stations that produce electricity. MTE is excited to bring a week of shows to some of the most prolific diamond mines in Botswana, and hopes to encourage increased growth and interest in Botswana’s biggest industry. MTE is so successful because we believe in the face to face driven philosophy. www.mteexpos.co.za/expopedia 17
