East Timor Friendship Visit Event image


Did you know you have an entire community of friends overseas?

Since 2000 The City of Port Phillip has been engaged in a friendship agreement with the East Timorese city of Suai in response to the violent end to Indonesian occupation and the independence vote in 1999.

Our two cities have been working together on many community development initiatives including the installation of solar cells for lighting in off-grid villages, local training programs and scholarship opportunities for young people.

Mr Alberto Barros, the Director of the Covalima Community Centre in Suai is visiting St Kilda Library to speak about these and other development programs in Covalima district and the ongoing friendship with the City of Port Phillip.

Join Alberto for a fascinating insight into a lasting friendship between two cities and two cultures.

With One Bean Timorese coffee will be available for sale at the event for $11.50 for 250g.
