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.
