Botswana President Dr Mokgweetsi Masisi hosted Founder and Chairman of the Econet Group Mr Strive Masiyiwa on Tuesday in his office for a tête-à-tête ahead of the much anticipated Gaborone Town hall discussion on youth entrepreneurship at Gaborone International Convention Center.

Botswana Government reported that Masiyiwa is in Botswana at the invitation of President Masisi, to discuss youth entrepreneurship particularly in the Information and Communication Technology space.

The discussion will be held under the theme unlocking youth entrepreneurship through the knowledge-based economy.

The Botswana Government said it invited Masiyiwa because he owns a pan-African telecommunications, media and technology company with operations and investments in 29 countries.

Since assuming presidency on the 1st of April 2018, Masisi pledged to diversify Botswana's economy into a knowledge-based economy as part of his road map.
