FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New assistance for local businesses available from Peace Dividend Trust

Dili, Timor-Leste, 8 January 2008 — Today is the formal opening of the Timor-Leste’s Tender Distribution Point (TDP), a facility managed by Peace Dividend Trust Timor-Leste. The TDP will provide a central location for local businesses to access information about available business opportunities with the international organizations in Timor-Leste. It will also offer the international organizations an opportunity to gain access to more local suppliers.

“The idea behind Peace Dividend Trust and its Tender Distribution Point is a good and practical one. Building the private sector is an important objective of the government, especially expansion of local business training, and we hope the international community will increase their local procurement by using services such as this,” remarks His Excellency Gil Alves, Minister for Industry, Commerce and Tourism.

“AusAID is committed to ongoing economic development in Timor-Leste. The Peace Dividend Marketplace will promote the country’s private sector and assist in development of the economy’s capacity for global competition. Australia is pleased to be the largest donor for this project in supporting their work here,” says Ms. Robin Scott-Charlton, Counsellor, Development Cooperation, Australian Agency for International Development.

PDT works with procurement departments of all types of organizations including the UN, donors, embassies, international investors, defense forces, NGOs and government. We would like to thank our initial launch partners who have agreed to distribute purchase information through the Tender Distribution Point. These partners include: Asia Foundation, Australian Embassy, Care International Timor-Leste, Concern, CRS, IOM, NRC, Oxfam, Plan International, UNDP, UNICEF, and USAID/DAI.

“UNDP is proud to support local businesses in Timor-Leste and looks forward to working with Peace Dividend Trust to further the international community’s efforts toward peace building through ongoing development of the local economy. We view this as a critical component of ensuring stability and security,” states Nick Beresford, Deputy Country Director (Operations), United Nations Development Programme.

Every company operating in Timor-Leste is invited to visit our offices to discuss how we can help them access more international business opportunities. Additional resources available include procurement manuals, information about the private sector, sample company profiles and vendor registration forms.

“I am very interested in Peace Dividend Trust’s services. They have provided our business with information about opportunities which we did not know about,” reports Jorge do Carmo of Waimori Carpentry, a local business owner who employs 60 Timorese staff.
