I would also like to confirm that we would be grateful for your help, 1f we so require 1t, in obtaining financial and/or technical assistance for projects and programmes under our own auspices or under Non Government auspices. Such assistance may well be requested in relation to the National Conservacion Strategy, where we will be specifically interested in promoting conservation; diversifying rural employment; developing tourism; planning good urban environments; utilising wildlife; and promoting sustainable livestock development, amongst other things.
I do hope you find these points a satisfactory basis on which we can build mutual cooperation and benefit. We certainly en joged your visit and the chance it provided to have valuable discussions and to show you something of Botswana. We look forward to continuing che dialogue.
