By Resolution Number 40/2017 the Government of Timor-Leste had established the National Civil Aviation Policy - “Growing Aviation to 2030: Providing Connectivity to Support Economic and Social Development”, drafted by an Inter-Ministerial Working Group through a collaborative, consensus-based approach. The Policy set out a vision for Timor-Leste to enjoy safe, secure and efficient air services through compliance with international safety and security standards, effective oversight of safety and security of civil aviation, continuing implementation of the Timor-Leste State Safety Programme, and proactive and cooperative participation in global and regional initiatives to improve the safety and security of civil aviation. The National Civil Policy provides a framework that allows aviation stakeholders to develop their plans with confidence taking into account the Government’s commitments. The Government of Timor-Leste, as ICAO Member State, shares the common understanding that safety and security must occupy first place in civil aviation policies. The Government recognize that culture of safety and security must be deeply integrated in all entities responsible for aviation infrastructure and service providers. Accordingly, under the National Aviation Policy the Safety and Security have been accorded the highest priority.
