Australia has a strong interest in a prosperous and stable Timor-Leste.
Australia and Timor-Leste are close neighbours, with a shared history and strong people-to-people links. Australia has an enduring interest in a stable, peaceful and prosperous Timor-Leste. We remain Timor-Leste’s largest partner in aid and security. Many Australians are actively engaged with Timor-Leste through Australian state, territory and local governments, non-government organisations, the private sector, learning institutions and friendship groups.
Timor-Leste has made substantial progress in the years since independence. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Popular Consultation and UN mandated missions in Timor-Leste. We will commemorate this important milestone in partnership with the people and Government of Timor-Leste. For more information, visit our Events page.
