List of land claims

Cadastral and Social Mapping of Tibar Bay Area

The Ministry of Transport and Communications has requested the cadastral mapping of certain areas in Tibar Bay, as indicated with orange on the below map:

  • to identify any claims on the land that is proposed to be used for the Tibar Bay Port PPP, and
  • to identify any claims on the neighbouring land that may be indirectly affected by the construction and operation of the Port. It should be noted that this is the largest part of the area mapped.

This information will be used to:

  • negotiate land acquisition with the owners of private land needed for the Port, and
  • prepare adequate mitigating measures to minimize the impact of Port construction and operation on adjoining land users and the environment.

On August 1, 2014, a meeting was held in Tibar with the community to inform about the data collection for the cadastral and social mapping of the area. The meeting was chaired by Ministry of Transport and Communications, with the participation of about 65 members from the Tibar and Ulmera sucos as well as the sub-district administrator of Bazartete.

The community was cooperative and willing to meet with the members of the Technical Team conducting the data collection.  This took place in August and September with teams from Secretary of State of Fisheries, Ministry of Social Solidarity, Secretary of State for Arts and Culture, and National Directorate for Land, Property and Cadastral Services under the Secretary of State for Land and Property, Secretary of State for Environment and Secretary of State of Professional Training and Employment Policy.

The results of the cadastral and social mapping will be published shortly.

The first meeting with the community of Tibar was held on June 11, with about 120 persons from Tibar attended the meeting. The meeting was opened by the District Administrator, Sr. Domingos da Conceicao dos Santos, and welcome was also given by sub-district administrator of Bazartete, Sr. Augusto Perreira de Araujo. The chefe suco of Tibar, Sr. Bento da Conceicao, and Ulmera, Sr. Laurentino Martins, also attended the meeting.

The National Director of Aportil, Sr. Lino Barreto, representing the Ministry of Transport and Communications and Co-Chair of the inter-ministerial Technical Team for Stakeholder Engagement, presented the plans for the Tibar Port to the audience, including why Tibar was selected, and what the social and environmental impacts may be.


Members of the audience had a chance to ask questions and provide comments during the following hours. The most frequently raised issues were:

– How will people be compensated if they have to move?
– How will the local people benefit from the construction of the Port?
– How will the increased traffic in the bay affect the access for fishermen, particularly to the rompongs on the outer side of the reef
– How will the Port affect the livelihood of the fishermen?
– What is the environmental impact, particularly on seaweed business and the fishing?
– How will the Port affect the salt production in the bay?
– Will the Port construction impact on the sites of cultural importance?
– What are the disadvantages of the Port?
– What are the plans of the Government for the future of the fishermen affected by the Port?
– Suggestion to make a study on how to improve the future livelihoods of the people in Tibar Bay.

Some the questions were answered by the inter-ministerial Technical Team, which was represented by MSS, Secretary of State for Environment and Secretary of State for Fisheries, and others will be responded to at the next community meeting or through leaflets. The team noted all the questions and these will be taken into consideration in the continued preparations of the Port. Members of the audience expressed their appreciation of the government having already prepared a team to deal with their concerns.

The community was informed about the Focal Point at Ministry of Transport and Communications, Lenty Liu, (phone 3313755), who will forward any questions or concerns from the public to the inter-ministerial Technical Team.


Posters were studied while waiting for the meeting to start. These will be displayed at the District Administrator office, the Sub-district Administrator office of Bazartete, and at the Suco office of Tibar and Ulmera./Populasaun balun hare posters ba projetu nian antes sorumutu komesa.

Notice of Prequalification

Firms Prequalified for Tibar Bay Port

The Government has prequalified four firms to tender for the new port to be built at Tibar Bay.

The Project Evaluation Team, led by the National Procurement Commission, announced that the Council of Ministers has endorsed the recommendation that International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), Mota-Engil – Ambiente e Serviço, SGPS, S.A. (MEAS), the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (POSNCO) and Bolloré Africa Logistics (Bollore AL) are the firms prequalified.

The project involves the construction and operation of a 600 meter wharf along the western side of Tibar Bay, together with container storage, equipment and other infrastructure required by a modern cargo terminal.  The Government, with support from its project adviser the International Finance Corporation (IFC), has conducted extensive feasibility studies and planning over the last two years.  The winning bidder will be granted a 30-year Concession to construct and operate the port.  The total project cost is estimated to be around US$300-400 million, with a major part of this to be invested by the winning bidder.

The Government, with support from IFC, designed prequalification criteria to ensure that firms bidding for the project have a strong international track record in port construction and operation, as well as the required financial capacity to take on a project of this size.  The open invitation to prequalify was issued on 21 October 2013 and distributed widely through local and international media.  Prequalification applications were assessed against the criteria by The Project Evaluation Team.

The Project Evaluation Team is very happy with the response. The four firms selected are reputable companies with considerable international experience.

The next stage in the tender will see the four firms issued with an invitation to submit proposals, bidder consultations, followed by submission of proposals and selection of the winning bidder.

The tender process is designed to ensure the Government gets the best value for money for this project, as well as the technical requirements for the port that will be focused on the development benefits like employment opportunities for Timorese, economic opportunities for local people and strong community consultation.

The project is a long-term partnership between the Government and the investor.  With IFC’s help the Government have learned from past experience in Timor-Leste, as well as internationally, to make sure the Government’s interests are fully protected under the Concession.
