Greetings from Ambassador

Welcome to the website of Embassy of Japan in Timor-Leste.
It is my great honor and pleasure to be newly appointed as Ambassador of Japan to Timor-Leste.

I admire the country and the people of Timor-Leste because the democracy is firmly rooted in the nation during the 15 years after its restoration of independence. However, Timor-Leste faces many challenges for its development, and I, like my predecessors, will make at most effort for the nation building of this country.

Bilateral relationship of Japan and Timor-Leste people started way before the independence, and the two countries have enjoyed multi-layered exchanges. I will spare no efforts to enhance this friendly relationship, together with Japanese citizens residing in this country. I look forward to meeting all of you in various occasions to come.
