    “We welcome the first visit to Poland by a representative of the Timorese government in 12 years. Our country has always supported the Timorese people in its aspiration to build an independent and democratic state,” Deputy Minister Katarzyna Kacperczyk said at a meeting with East Timor’s Deputy Foreign Minister Roberto Soares on 12 May.

    Deputy Minister Soares thanked Poland for its development assistance to Timor. The talks covered the development of bilateral relations, as well as the situation in Southeast Asia and the European Union. The interlocutors emphasized that Poland and Timor share not only the love of freedom, but also the attachment to Christian values, and great respect for John Paul II. The East Timorese government official outlined the cabinet’s plans to reform administration, finances, and transport infrastructure. The Timorese delegation will also hold meetings at the ministries of economic development, sport and tourism, and national defence.



    Poland and East Timor established diplomatic relations in November 2002. Between 2014 and 2015, East Timor benefitted from Polish aid projects which were carried out under the small grants programme in such fields as health and education. In 2015, our trade was worth USD 514,000. Poland has a Honorary Consulate in the East Timorese capital city of Dili.
