DILI, 28 august 2021 (TATOLI) – The Coordinating Minister of Economic Affairs (MKAE), Joaquim Amaral asked the Ministry of Tourism, Trade, and Industry (MTCI) to accelerate the distribution of the Staple Food to those communities that hadn’t received the food since the implementation of the program.

“I ask MTCI to carry out the distribution of the staple food program to those communities that hadn’t received the food.  The distribution of the first phase had been concluded. Now a resolution is needed to implement the distribution of the food to those who have not received it,” Amaral told TATOLI after attending the launch of the New Project of Digitizing Payments for Credit Unions, in Timor-Leste, at Hotel Timor, thursday.

He said there are about 25.000 people who had not received the staple food, of which 19.000 are from Dili municipality. These people don’t need to worry, as their names are already on the list because they have submitted their household certificate numbers to the authorities: “It will take a little bit of time to confirm their name with the Ministry of State Administration.

Responding to MKAE’s statement, the Minister of Tourism, Trade, and Industry (MTCI), José Lucas do Carmo da Silva said his party had received a letter from MKAE: “MTCI will accelerate the distribution of the staple food to the communities who have not received it.”

“Now all of the documents had been submitted to the Ministry of Finance. MTCI is still waiting for the analysis of the Cost, Volume, and Profit (CVP). Once this process is concluded, then MTCI will contract the selected companies to begin the distribution of the staple food to these 25.000 people,” Silva told reporters at his office in Bebora, Dili, on thursday.

Silva added that the process of the verification of the documents may take some time as it had to go through a data checking process begin with the documents submitted by the head of the villages to the Ministry of State Administration (MAE).
