The idea of developing a national vision was first discussed in different forums in 1995 and 96. The work of defining Vision 2016 began in August 1996 with a nine person Presidential Task Group. They produced a booklet entitled "A Framework for a Long Term Vision For Botswana".
This group was expanded to thirty one people in January 1997. The additional members represented political parties, Government, parastatals, non - governmental organisations, churches, youth, the private sector and labour Unions. The task of the expanded group was to manage a process for consulting the people of Botswana to discover their common aspirations for the future. They did that, and produced a booklet entitled " A Long Term Vision For Botswana: Towards Prosperity for All".
