Australian Embassy

Welcome - Bemvindo


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.

As government institutions mature, Timor-Leste continues to take ownership of its development agenda. The Government is implementing its own 20-year Strategic Development Plan 2011-2030 (SDP), which outlines its vision for using its petroleum revenues to develop the economy and alleviate poverty.
