BRISBANE has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Oe-Cusse district in East Timor.

Lord Mayor Jim Soorley and East Timor's Senior Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Dr Jose Ramos Horta are the signatories to the agreement, which links both centres in a mutually beneficial development arrangement.

Oe-Cusse has a population of 45,000-50,000 and is considered "highly vulnerable" with much of its infrastructure destroyed.
