On 19 February 2021, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted Development Partners (donors) for a quarterly meeting as "a platform for constructive dialogue, building on the spirit and initiatives of partnership to move forward the economic recovery agenda." La'o Hamutuk invited to observe the meeting, which we found very informative. Therefore, in order to make this information more widely available, we are publishing this web page.
We will be glad to include additional documents; please send them to La'o Hamutuk. Unfortunately, the documents we have are all in English or Portuguese, and we would welcome Tetum versions.
