The Minister of Transport and Communications, Nonofo Molefhi says efforts are being made to find suitable airline partners with a view to improve airline services in the country.
Molefhi said currently government is assisting Air Botswana to re-shape its strategy to make a major investment in airlines and give its customers first class service and the satisfaction they require.
He was briefing members of Hospitality & Tourism Association Botswana (HATAB) on the role of transport in the tourism sector.
He said as part of the strategy, they should provide Air Botswana with provisional guarantees to find suitable partners.
He said government has signed many bilateral air service agreements and some such as American Airline had shown interest.
By 2014, he said they expect to see construction of Maun and Kasane airports.
BCL WELLNESS HAILED
BCL’s financial wellness dimension programme has been hailed for providing employees with education for establishing financial goals.
The Assistant Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Vincent Seretse said this during the launch of the organisation’s financial wellness campaign held at Makhubu Club in Selebi Phikwe on December 7.
The initiative, he said, focuses on aiding employees to manage their money, promote positive financial behaviour and encourage employees to save their resources to positively influence their lives and future.
Seretse said financial wellness was not about having plenty of money and large bank balances, but about decision making to help an individual on building awareness of their financial situation.
He called upon all BCL employees and management to embrace the programme as it stands to benefit both employees and the company.
