Republic of Botswana

Brazil and Botswana established diplomatic relations in 1985. With the intensification of the relations in the first decade of the 2000‘s, Brazil established its Embassy in Gaborone in 2009. The Embassy of Botswana in Brasília – the first mission of the country in Latin America – was opened in 2009.

The challenges of social development and the fight against hunger and poverty are central themes in the bilateral relation. In 2005, Brazil and Botswana signed a Bilateral Agreement on Technical Cooperation, legal framework of the joint work programs.

Botswana is member of the SACU, the Customs Union of Southern African countries. In 2004, MERCOSUR and SACU concluded a Preferential Trade Agreement, an intermediate step for the creation of a free-trade area between the two blocs.
