Sound macroeconomic policies and prudent use of diamond revenues have made Botswana one of the fastest-growing countries in the world over the last 25 years, and it has now achieved middle-income status. Despite the government’s efforts, however, the economy remains highly dependent on diamond exports, and the country continues to suffer from one of the highest HIV/AIDS infection rates in the world.
