Partnering for success: Sector unites to grow aquaculture in Timor-Leste
- Over 100 public and private sector representatives came together recently in Timor-Leste, marking another step toward realizing the potential of fish farming in the country. The Timor-Leste government, private sector and development partners have agreed to continue working together to boost access to and availability of farmed fish to combat poverty and malnutrition in the half-island nation. The commitment, made at the 2nd National Aquaculture Forum in the capital Dili on 8 August 2019, is critical to realizing the government’s goal to increase fish production from only around 50 metric tons a year in 2009 to 12,000 metric tons per year by 2030.
