Celebrating Ten Years of Restored Independence

La'o Hamutuk joins with all citizens of Timor-Leste and their supporters all over the world in celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Restoration of Timor-Leste's independence.  Now that we have consolidated the state, it is time to build a sustainable and equitable economy which can provide for economic and social justice for all the people in Timor-Leste. 

Ten years from now, Timor-Leste will be at a critical point in our history, as we were ten years ago. Our producing oil fields will be running out, our Petroleum Fund may have been spent, our youth population will be much larger, and we will be repaying the principal on today's debts. We hope we will have developed economic sovereignty to go with our political sovereignty, and suggest a few recent documents to provide information and motivation to achieve this critical goal.
