This Financial Sector Assessment (FSA) is based on the work of the IMF-World Bank team that visited Botswana in January and March 2007. The principal objectives of the team were to assist the authorities in evaluating the current state of the financial sector and its developmental needs. The team focused on five areas: (i) systemic liquidity and the macro-financial framework; (ii) financial system stability and its resilience to shocks; (iii) the regulatory and supervisory framework for banks, pension funds, insurance companies, and other NBFIs; (iv) progress in meeting international standards in banking supervision, transparency of monetary and financial policies, payment systems, and antimoney laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML-CFT); and (v) access to and affordability of financial services.
