Nicolau Lobato Presidential Palace, Bairro Pité, 9 October – The president of the Timorese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI-TL), Oscar Lima, accompanied by his team, invited the President of the Republic Francisco Guterres Lú Olo to preside over the opening of the CCI-TL conference.
The CCI-TL conference will be held on 11-12 October and is aimed at contributing to the strengthening of the private sector through programmes that are yet to be developed and electing its leaders. Since the private sector is still fragile, the conference is aimed at discussing ways to make the private sector more creative, productive and sustainable and the national economy stronger.
The President of the Republic said that he was very excited about the theme chosen for the CCI-TL conference given the country’s current economic situation and pointed out that challenges must be faced for a better future.
The Head of State also called on the CCI-TL to create opportunities for economic growth and emphasised the importance of developing an appropriate legal framework to strengthen the private sector in Timor-Leste.
