Botswana official calls for more Chinese investment in glass

BEIJING, May 19 (Xinhua) -- A Botswanian official called for more Chinese companies and entrepreneurs to invest in her country's glass manufacturing industry here on Monday.

"Sino-Botswana trade has been growing steadily. We can look at the industries in Botswana where they have Chinese companies -- initially construction, production industries soon, and they are now looking at the possibility of glass manufacturing," said Dorcas Makgato-Malesu, Chief Executive Officer of Botswana Export Development and Investment Authority, in an exclusive interview with Xinhua.

"Botswana has abundant resources of silicon, which can be used in the glass industry. There will be quite a number of companies that are interested in that," she said.

She said she is very optimistic about the momentum of growing trade between China and Botswana.

"I'm very optimistic. China is an emerging economy ... those who are not in China now looking for opportunities will soon be out of the ball game in the not so distant future," she said.
