No bailout for Mines says Botswana

26 january 2009

The Botswana government has no plans to lend money to its bleeding mining industry, amid the effects of the financial crisis, the local press has revealed.
The Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Baledzi Gaolathe, said the job losses experienced in the mining sector were in response to a slump in global demand and prices for their products rather than credit problems.
"Government does not have unlimited resources to be able to restrain private companies from laying off employees," the minister said, responding to questions about why the government was not lending money to companies such as Debswana and BCL.
The minister said the credit crunch besieging the United States and the rest of the world should not prompt comparison of policy responses between the US and Botswana.
