Tourism by choice or by chance
Tourism has been identified as one of the key industries in the Timor-Leste in the 2011-2030 Strategic Development Plan. After years of working in the tourism industry in Timor-Leste our observations are that there is little understanding about what the tourism industry is, how it works, the ways in which it works, how people can be involved, the benefits and risks of various models and what it realistically takes to build this industry.
Is this something that you think is important? Do you have ideas about what cold be done to start this conversation?
