Timor-Leste

     日本語

Timor-Leste

In 2022, Timor-Leste marks twenty year anniversary for its independence.
In July 2011, Timor-Leste issued the Strategic Development Plan 2030 (SDP) which guides nation-building efforts for sustainable growth and development. JICA then has set three priority areas: 1) development and improvement of socioeconomic infrastructure, 2) promotion of industry diversification, and 3) improvement and expansion of social service delivery.
Departing from the dependency on oil and natural gas mined in the nearby seas, it is necessary to continue to diversify domestic industries, create jobs, and develop basic socio-economic infrastructure. JICA has been contributing on infrastructure development such as Dili ferry terminals, the construction of roads and bridges, and the buildings of the Faculty of Engineering, Science and Technology (FEST) at National University of Timor-Lorosae (UNTL), the only national university in Timor-Leste.
Recently JICA is focusing more on human resource and organizational development, such as increasing production and improving distribution of domestic rice, managing natural resources to support the sustainable livelihoods of residents in mountain areas, and supporting FEST, UNTL in collaboration with faculty members of Japanese University.
