BIDPA is proud to have been involved in the country’s golden jubilee celebrations that were witnessed throughout the expanse of our nation during the course of the year. The celebrations culminated with multitudes gathering at the national stadium on Independence Day to share their joy in Botswana’s journey since her attainment of self rule in 1966. Like somebody put it, it was a celebration like no other. The sense of national pride and patriotism, the beautiful performances by local artists, massive fireworks display, the float procession; all these and many other activities kept the crowd captivated at the national stadium. BIDPA, jointly with Statistics Botswana, was part of the float procession that depicted various aspects and stages of the country’s development from the pre-independence period to the post-independence era. The BIDPA BOT50 Celebrations Committee managed to capture the Institute’s mandate, services and key milestones since its establishment in 1995.

It is worth noting that the independence celebrations also marked the conclusion of national Vision 2016 and the launch of Vision 2036. BIDPA played a crucial role in the development of both Visions, and we could not be more proud of the confidence that the Government of Botswana continues to show on the Institute. It is, therefore, evident that BIDPA has made remarkable contribution to the country’s development even though the Institute came into being almost three decades after independence.
