Economic Growth and Trade

Language: English | Tetun

As approximately 70 percent of Timor-Leste’s population relies on agriculture for their livelihoods, USAID focuses on accelerating inclusive economic growth for farm households in the country’s rural areas.

USAID is helping over 33,000 people in 250 com-munities earn higher incomes, improve their nutri-tion, and manage their economic assets more effectively.

Our partnerships, including wih the government of New Zealand and ConocoPhillips, support activities aimed at boosting output above subsistence levels and improving incomes by increasing farm productivity and establishing links to markets. Additionally, we provide training and information to rural households to increase household consumption of nutritious foods.
