I would like to
take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you have
been doing these last years in keeping all people interested in
Timor-Leste's present and future duly informed. Your objectivity and
professionalism, providing an essential space for everybody to
express itself freely has been a great contribution to consolidate
Timor-Leste's emerging democracy. It is an example of how to give
voice to the civil society and others at relatively low costs, an
example that many other countries should follow.
ETAN has been extremely valuable to me when I worked in ET.
Thanks again for providing this important service.
Congratulations for this excellent source of
up-to-date information about Timor Leste.
Keep up the good work!
