Industry Associations in Timor-LesteĀ 


IADE closely cooperates with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Timor – Leste (CCI-TL), which was established through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on 11 April 2011. IADE and CCI – TL share the mission to promote entrepreneurship in Timor-Leste and to develop and enhance the skills of entrepreneurs. To this end, IADE and CCI-TL have agreed to cooperate in supporting the private sector by providing services such as business training, business counselling, business matchmaking, the organisation of trade fairs and the provision of relevant business information including government tenders and other business opportunities.

The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Timor – Leste (CCI-TL) is the foremost Chamber of Commerce and an umbrella organization representing business associations in Timor - Leste. CCI-TL was established following the National Congress held in Dili on 16 – 17 April 2010. The objective of CCI-TL is to represent the needs of its members in policy advocacy and representation and deliver a range of business services to enhance the skills, knowledge and performance of the businesses its represent to achieve private sector growth.

The CCI-TL aims to be a strategic partner for economic growth to the government as well as a trusted third party for businesses. With the establishment of a functioning Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the private sector will have a united voice representing their business needs and aspirations for the years to come.

Most importantly, the CCI-TL will develop and deliver a range tailored business services and solutions to assist with private sector growth. This will include the implementation of self-regulatory instruments and processes to assist with the classification of businesses resulting in a strong, viable and competitive private sector.

Through these initiatives, the business community will be able to increase its efficiency and productivity leading to new trade, business & investment opportunities and reduced private sector dependency on public sector spending to sustain its business growth.

With the implementation of a number of initiatives targeting business growth, CCI-TL will gradually become a sustainable organization representing the interests of Timor – Leste businesses and also a strategic partner for national development with a key role on Timor - Leste’s economic growth.
