Timor-Leste 20th Anniversary Commemorations

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Popular Consultation and UN mandated missions.

The Australian Embassy is aware this will be a significant year for thousands of Australians with connections to Timor-Leste. This includes Australians deployed with UNAMET, INTERFET (led by Australia) and UNTAET, as well as Australian community, church, friendship, sporting and advocacy groups – all of whom have deep and longstanding connections with the people of Timor-Leste.

We will commemorate this important milestone in partnership with the people and Government of Timor-Leste. The Government of Timor-Leste’s 20th Anniversary Organising Committee has developed a schedule of cultural events and commemorative activities for August, which can be found here, and September, which can be found here.
