Chongqing and Gaborone, capital of Botswana in 2009 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on establishing friendly relations and cooperation.

Once proudly referred to as "Africa's fastest growing city," Botswana's capital, Gaborone, has been – since its inception – continually expanding, to the point that now the sprawling urban centre of some 300 000 residents has become nearly unrecognisable from the tiny, dusty administrative town it was at the country's independence in 1966.

Gaborone is situated between Kgale and Oodi Hills, on the Notwane River in the southeastern corner of Botswana, and 15 kilometres from the South African border. The city is served by the Sir Seretse Khama International Airport.
