In a statement on Tuesday Masisi said, "I want to share with you that among the bills passed by the 11th Parliament is a bill that allows you to run your small business from home without requiring a license. Soon I will sign this bill into law."

He said it was the intention of government to introduce the ease of doibng business for Batswana.

"It is our serious intent to reduce excessive and unnecessary regulation of the economy to allow you to prosper. This is part of our improving the ease of doing business for Batswana.

"Please take advantage of these efforts to do your part in self improvement for your communities & our country. Have a productive week."
