Timor Leste country is relatively very small, if manage professional like Singapore without natural resources could develop more then ENT Province in the West and would elevate people welfare, some of it would consume in the West island or share with their families. As the result, would create peaceful relationship between families and between the countries as well, forget pain endured in war period.
