Timor-Leste’s National Tourism Policy is an overarching policy with broad principles set out for the development of the country’s tourism sector in the period up to 2030. It sets a framework for placing tourism at the core of national socio-economic expansion and calls on all stakeholders to coordinate, collaborate and partner in order to earn foreign exchange, create jobs and alleviate poverty.

On 5 May 1999, it was announced from New York by the United Nations that ‘popular consultation’ would be held in East Timor to determine its political future as an independent nation or an autonomous state within Indonesia. After a number of delays, the newly elected Indonesian President, B. J. Habibie, announced that the referendum would occur on 30 August 1999, overseen by the United Nations.

The International Labour Organization has a mandate to “help advance the creation of decent work and the economic and working conditions that give working people and business people a stake in lasting peace, prosperity and progress”1. In Timor-Leste, the priority for the ILO has included enhancing youth employment promotion, integrating employment into rural economic development and improving labour market governance. These priorities work in concert with Timor-Leste’s Strategic Development Plan 2011-30, which emphasises the support and development of the private sector to become the driver of employment creation and income generation.

Less than two decades after achieving its independence, Timor-Leste is grappling to secure its place in the regional and global economy, while stabilizing the livelihoods of its populace. The recent petroleum discovery brings new wealth and opportunity but also demands caution in managing the resources for long term sustainability. To address this, the government has undertaken broad efforts includng building its admistrative and regulatory capacity, creating social support programs and deploying widespread infrastructure upgrades and diversifying its economy.
This assessment informs USAID/Timor-Leste on the opportunities presented by candlenut exports, tourism, and mobile banking to support economic growth and diversification in the country. While the candlenut and tourism sectors examine both the domestic factors and international expansion, mobile banking was examined as an economy-wide financial service, as well as a conduit for financial inclusion for under-served populations.
