Botswana Business Confidence

In Botswana, the Bank’s biannual Business Expectations Survey (BES) collects information on the local business community’s perceptions about the prevailing state of the economy and economic prospects. The business confidence index (BCI) reflects business conditions at a particular point in time and it is reported on a gross basis. That is, it is calculated as the percentage of respondents indicating ‘satisfactory’ conditions to the total number of respondents indicating ‘unsatisfactory’ and ‘satisfactory’ conditions. The BCI value varies from 0 to 100, with zero indicating extreme lack of confidence, while 100 indicates extreme confidence. As an example, a BCI value of 40 is interpreted to mean that 40 percent of all respondents (gross) rated prevailing conditions as satisfactory.
