Sunrise LNG in Timor-Leste: Dreams, Realities and Challenges

A Report by Lao Hamutuk
Timor-Leste Institute for Reconstruction Monitoring and Analysis

Book Launch

On 18 February, 2008, La'o Hamutuk held a Book Launch for our report on Sunrise LNG at Memorial Hall in Dili. In spite of the State of Emergency following the attempted assassinations of the President and Prime Minister one week before, more than 115 people came, filling the room to capacity. Attendees included 23 from Timorese NGOs, 18 from international NGOs, 14 from the petroleum sector of the government, 17 from other government departments, 13 journalists, 10 foreign diplomats, six from international institutions and three from oil companies.

Secretary of State for Natural Resources Alfredo Pires was the guest speaker, and gave this PowerPoint presentation.

Following the Secretary's presentation, Santina Soares and Viriato Seac presented a one-hour PowerPoint summary of the report in Tetum and English.
