At the audience, the leader of the Chinese enterprise’s organization presented the new structure to the Head of Government.

From his part, the Head of the Government thanked the commitment of Chinese Enterprises that intend to expand to invest in Timor-Leste, because currently, the Timor-Leste’s economy is still very dependent on the public sector, while the private sector has still little expression, therefore, the Government leader hopes that, from now on, the private sector, both internal and external, may have the initiative to make an investment.
Currently, there are 7 Chinese enterprises investing in the country, particularly in the agriculture and infrastructure areas, with interventions to improve national roads, electricity, and the Tibar port. END
