Programme to fast track land servicing

President Lt Gen. Seretse Khama Ian Khama says the Economic Stimulus Programme (ESP) will fast track servicing of 37 000 commercial, industrial, residential and other plots, beginning in the current financial year.

Delivering the State-of-the Nation Address Monday, President Khama indicated that shortage of serviced land had in recent years all too often proved to be a bottle neck rather than an enabler of development.

He also noted that equitable and efficient distribution of land was a critical factor for realising economic opportunities and social wellbeing.

“In those efforts they shall be facilitated by the establishment of a land information centre resulting from the Land Administration Processes, Capacity Building and Systems (LAPCAS) Project,” he said
