East Timor

Project Scope

Prior to our client’s market entry, Reconnaissance was requested to perform a full Business Reconnaissance on the country and specifically on its capital, Dili. Reconnaissance carried out the assessment over a ten day period and ascertained information about the key areas relevant to an organisation responsible for a large number of ex-patriots.

  • Medical facilities
  • Security situation
  • International aid agencies
  • United Nations contacts
  • Police contacts
  • Assessment of country’s infrastructure
  • Transport and logistical needs
  • Laws
  • Workforce information
  • Accommodation
  • Tax structure
  • Business contacts and support agencies
  • Governmental contacts
  • Competitor information


Based on the Business Reconnaissance, a detailed and comprehensive Security Strategy was developed and presented to the client. This strategy was designed around the conditions within the potential market and had the sole aim of enabling our client to operate at all levels in a potentially hostile environment.
