A few days ago a representative of Air Timor to came our offices in Balide, Dili. He was interested in enlisting our support in finding local suppliers of fresh fruit vegetables and even fish with a view to getting their goods to the market, and no I am not talking about Comoro market. He wants to get this stuff to the market in Singapore.
See below for a very interesting offer of free air-freight from Dili to Singapore.
Interesting small print
There may be alot of obstacles to getting this initiative “off the ground”, but I can remember when the idea seemed literally “fantastical”. Perhaps it still is, however, I have a feeling it is not, and as long as we are able (and it may not be much longer) we will put in a serious effort to push this idea forward.
The Worldbank has a very interesting initiative underway to expand non-oil exports – perhaps Air Timor, the Worldbank and others should have a pow wow?
