Strategic Development Plan subdistrict socialization finishes

In April, the Government of Timor-Leste published a summary of their draft Strategic Development Plan for the next 20 years, and the Prime Minister began visiting each of Timor-Leste's 65 districts to socialize the plan. He finished this process on the night of September 11 (actually at 2:00 am on September 12) in Laulara, Aileu district. La'o Hamutuk attended this final meeting, and have posted some pictures of the meeting and the PM's presentation (2.5 MB).

The full version of the plan has not been released, although we have published a leaked copy, as well as our analysis of its feasibility and implications.   Last week, a letter to the PM from acting UNMIT head Finn Reske-Neilsen was also leaked.

La'o Hamutuk continues to follow this process, and we encourage everyone in Timor-Leste to inform themselves and share their perspectives on the decisions involved in this plan, which will have serious implications for decades of Timor-Leste's future.
