Agribusiness investment in Timor-Leste : guidelines supporting win-win outcomes (Inglês)

Timor-Leste needs private sector agribusiness investment. Productivity levels in Timor-Leste are low by world standards and there is room for the private sector to play an important role in introducing new technologies, providing access to markets, and investing capital in the intensification of production. These guidelines outline a number of central principles for the consideration of agribusiness investors involved in primary industry engagement in rural Timor-Leste. The principles are based on an analysis of rural development and agricultural performance in Timor-Leste drawn from several engagements between investors and community members over the last decade since the country gained its independence. This document is divided into two sections. The first provides guidelines intended to assist those investing in agribusiness in Timor-Leste or considering such an investment. The second section presents additional background information on rural development in Timor-Leste and the private sector.
