PPIAF Supports Timor-Leste's First PPP Project

Author: PPIAF

Since 2011, PPIAF has assisted the Government of Timor-Leste (GoTL) to attract private-sector investment in the country’s greenfield container-port terminal in Tibar Bay, outside the capital city, Dili. With this assistance, the government identified this as a priority public-private partnership (PPP) project in 2011, then spent the next five years developing it, while also building its own institutional capacity. In June 2016, the government signed a 30-year, $490-million concession contract the first PPP in the country, with a private operator selected through a competitive bidding process.
