Estonian companies have been contributing to the construction of Botswana’s e-state for many years, and its recent partnership with ESTDEV means that it is now a priority in development cooperation. In this way, the Estonian state is better able to support Estonian companies and organizations operating in Botswana while creating systemic and sustainable digital development in the country.

In 2022, ESTDEV focused on learning more about the Botswana context and will map partners and opportunities to apply Estonian expertise to Botswana in priority areas. As of September 1, 2022, there were no ongoing projects in Botswana.
