Dili, Timor-Leste, 16 November 2009

This Timor-Leste Business Community Overview is Part One of a two part series.  The report is intended to provide a general overview of the private sector in Timor-Leste and the findings are intended to improve both knowledge of and access to domestic businesses.  Part Two will examine the national job landscape.

The assessments in this report are derived from the database of businesses developed by Peace Dividend Trust (PDT) and its Peace Dividend Marketplace Timor-Leste (PDM-TL) project. This database was funded by AusAID and the Government of Norway and built in partnership with the Timor-Leste Ministry of Tourism, Commerce and Industry (MTCI).

The project is designed to  1) increase the capacity of the private sector 2) create jobs and 3) generate wealth by connecting individual and institutional buyers and the domestic private sector in Timor-Leste.  For more information about the project please see the PDT website here.

PDM-TL staff collected the information profiled in this report between 1 November 2007 and 30 September 2009.  During this period, a total of 2,384 businesses were surveyed.  Individual profiles of each business can be found on the PDM-TL Online Procurement Database located at

To download the report click here or visit PDT’s webpage to access the report.

In the report you will find out information relating to:

  1. The geographic distribution of businesses across all 13 districts of Timor-Leste.
  2. The types of business activity pursued by the domestic private sector.
  3. The “age” of the business community.
  4. The size of the surveyed businesses.
  5. The communications systems used by businesses.
  6. The ownership and management of businesses.
