A world leader in diamond production, Botswana has a strong legal framework, low prevalence of civil unrest or disorder and minimal government interference in the mining sector. Botswana also boasts infrastructure that is in better condition than several of its neighbors, which has assisted in boosting interest from international companies in the mining sector.
