Botswana exported $438.9 million of rough diamonds in July, significantly higher than the $342.8 million figure for June and far ahead of the $70.3 million of goods exported in May. The statistics were provided by the Bank of Botswana. The July exports are the third-highest this year and Botswana exported $2.236 billion in the first seven months of this year. The country is on track to surpass the export figures for 2015 when the country was hit by a sharp slowdown in global demand.
