28/11/2013 TLLS - At the Extraordinary Meeting of the Council of Ministers of 7 October 2013, the Government gathered extraordinarily in the Council of Ministers’ meeting room, at the Government’s Palace, in Dili, and approved, amongst other things, the following Government’s Resolution which approves the Procurement Procedure for the project for the Establishment of the National Registry:
This diploma authorises the Ministry of Justice to request, by invitation, a technical and financial proposal for the establishment of the National Registry of Timor-Leste, following the adopted specifications.
The development of the National Registry – which includes the survey and cadastral mapping of the territory, the establishment of a computerized database and the establishment of an asset evaluation’s system for taxation purposes – assumes a strategic relevance for national security, to the extent that deals with classified information.
This project also assumes greater relevance to the economic and social development of the country, since it depends upon the attribution of property titles in Timor-Leste which will allow the planning and development of important economy sectors, such as agricultural and industrial sectors, as well as planning of greater national projects, such as Suai’s Logistics Base, the International Airport, the International Port, amongst others.
