ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of the foreign investment climate in East Timor, located in Southeast Asia, on the southernmost edge of the Indonesian archipelago. The Portuguese colonized the island in mid-century. Imperial Japan occupied East Timor from 1942 to 1945, but East Timor declared itself independent from Portugal in November 1975. International donors will provide a much-needed boost to this country's development.
