The location of the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (SSKIA) location is very strategically located for business. The combination of airport facilities and the site’s proximity to the diamond hub makes SSKIA appealing to a variety of sectors. High value-to-volume ratio manufacture products prosper here due to the air transportation infrastructure.
These include pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and electronics and electrical equipment, to name a few. With the development of the manufacturing sector and increased liberalisation of the aviation industry, SSKIA has become an aerotropolis with integrated logistics that are supporting industries in the SEZ and Gaborone. SSKIA SEZ is the centre of excellence in the region due to its business incubation facilities, retail, and e-commerce ecosystem, as well as being the centre for certification services. SSKIA is Botswana’s alternate gateway to Southern and Eastern Africa and is also an innovation hub, consisting of a high-capacity infrastructure and complete high-tech industrial ecosystem.
The current focus activities for SSKIA SEZ include diamond beneficiation, logistics, and automotive components.
