It will contribute a lot to Timor-Leste's foreign trade and economic development and attract foreign investors to invest and start businesses in Timor-Leste. The Tibar Bay Port will also facilitate the connectivity between Timor-Leste and the global and regional markets, advancing Timor-Leste's application for membership in ASEAN and the World Trade Organization.
