Business Botswana (BB) is a Business Association of Employers representing employers in all sectors of the Botswana economy in an advocacy capacity. The organisation was formed in 1971 and registered under the Trade Unions and Employers’ Act No. 23 of 1983. In 1988 the organisation changed to Botswana Confederation of Commerce, Industry and Manpower (BOCCIM) in an effort to embrace Chamber activities due to changes in the business environment. BB has been the vanguard and main voice of the private sector in Botswana. The organisation has protected the economic interests of the business community and through its philosophy of constructive policy dialogue, BB has won the confidence and respect of Government and other stakeholders in Botswana. On the 9th of July 2015, BOCCIM changed its name to Business Botswana.
