LH submission on mid-year budget rectification

This morning, La'o Hamutuk gave testimony to Parliament Committee C on the proposed budget rectification, which we followed up with a written submission covering the following topics:
  • Timor-Leste is getting closer to the “Resource Curse"
  • Unsustainable, illegal spending from the Petroleum Fund
  • Timor-Leste should only have one budget cycle each year
  • Package of Decentralized Development (PDD) is a little better than Pakote Referendum
  • Waiting for the Strategic Development Plan
  • Spending double on electricity
  • Increasing imports and resale of rice

  1. as new born country, timor leste must first develop their agriculture sector to feed themself. TL must halt the Hera heavy oil project and use the money to build agricultural infrastructure like irrigation and acquiring qgriculture technology.

    these will help to reduce rice subsidy and import.
