In Timor-Leste, the economy is showing signs of moderate recovery from the dual COVID-19 and natural disaster shocks in 2021. The economy is projected to grow by 2.4 percent in 2022 on the back of public spending and a strong COVID-19 vaccination campaign. Risks to the outlook include the recurrence of COVID-19 outbreaks and political uncertainty due to the upcoming Presidential election. Long-term growth prospects remain contingent on the ability of the Government to promote private sector growth and to build a more climate-resilient economy.
