Meet Timor-Leste, one of the newest nations in the world!

Timor-Leste, an island in Southeast Asia, is one of the newest countries in the world. After centuries of Portuguese colonization and over two decades of Indonesian occupation, the country became independent in 2002.

Independence came at a high cost: one third of the population had died from military action, starvation and disease, all infrastructure was destroyed, 75% of the population had been displaced and public administration was in collapse.

The country is being rebuilt from the ashes and, despite many challenges, incredible progress has been achieved. To know more about this pristine and beautiful small country in Southeast Asia, visit Timor-Leste
