FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Announcing Partnership: Kor Timor and Peace Dividend Trust

Dili, Timor-Leste, 22 September 2008 – Kor Timor and the Peace Dividend Trust (PDT) today announced a partnership in promoting job creation and Timor-Leste’s domestic private sector. Kor Timor is a leading manufacturer of locally hand-made products (including but not limited to boxes, books, packaging, bags) made from recycled, hand-made paper and Timor tais. In support of the “ Buy Local. Build Timor-Leste.” campaign Kor Timor will display the logo and slogan (above) on its products in the future.

Located in Taibessi, Dili, next to the Juvenile Centre, Kor Timor employs 17 people and serves institutional customers such as the Office of the President, Government and the diplomatic community, as well as exporting a small quantity of products to Australia. It also supplies local outlets and has its own shop at its workplace. “When this employment project started in 2007, we hoped it would be successful and provide jobs into the future for Timorese people in the community. We are amazed at the success of our products and the response from our clients,” said Sheila Boston, Manager, Kor Timor.

The “Buy Local. Build Timor-Leste” campaign is designed to promote the domestic private sector and drive job creation. Launched by the Peace Dividend Trust and the Ministry of Tourism, Commerce and Industry in May 2008, the campaign is part of the Peace Dividend Trust Marketplace project. Approximately 1600 verified business profiles can be found on the Timor-Leste online procurement database online at http://www.buildingmarkets.org/. PDT also provides buyer-supplier matchmaking services in Dili and six district,s in addition to a comprehensive Tender Distribution Centre. All services are free of charge.

“I invite any and all interested parties who are eager to promote business in Timor-Leste to partner with us in promoting the Timor-Leste Online Procurement Database by mounting the logo and slogan on their products or capital assets,” said Edward Rees, Country Director of PDT. “The Ministry of Infrastructure was very supportive when it allowed us to mount the logo and slogan on the Nakroma Ferry.” “I am especially pleased that Kor Timor has joined with us as it is a small business with a big profile offering a niche product here and abroad,” said Celio Alves PDT Matchmaking Associate.
