DILI, 31 august 2022 (TATOLI) – Global Industries Group today met with Prime Minster Taur Matan Ruak to discuss its plan to open industries in Timor-Leste which is expected to employ more than 27.000 Timorese workers.

Global Industries Group planned to open a number of industries in Timor-Leste, including fisheries, textile, hydroponic, poultry, beer production, salt production, cattle industry, pig farming, and the food chain.

The President of the Global Industries Group, Michael Francis said all of these industries will employ more than 27.000 in the near future: “So, we will bring 3.000 jobs from China to Timor-Leste.”

He said in terms of the clothing industry, the company will make various school uniforms for Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and other countries.

The company will also help Timor-Leste by building fishing and patrol boats to support the fisheries industry in the country.

“Timor-Leste is going to get back its economic exclusive zone, the fisheries which at the moment are not fished by the real people who live in Timor-Leste. We want to stop foreign fishers and we want Timorese to be fishing their own waters on their own boats,” said Francis.

“We will also plan to put salt manufacturing plant for industrial use and not salt for dinner.

With beer production, Francis said Global Industries Group will start its beer production to prevent imported beer from pouring into the country.

He said Hydroponic Farm System will be set up in Timor-Leste as well to produce various vegetables in the country

“It’s very important that we will put all the things together in the next few months. So, that we can start the production this year,” Francis told reporters after meeting Prime Minister Taur Matan Ruak, in Farol, Dili, today.

Global Industries Group’s President said they will also plan to set up pig farming which will grow more than 4.000 pigs: “In addition, we plan to grow 5.000 castles for meat and dairy production.”

“The meeting with Prime Minister was absolutely marvelous and fantastic,” he said.

Global Industries Group has been working with the Government of Timor-Leste since 2013 and understands that Timor-Leste is desperately in need of self-sufficiency for the betterment of its country and its people.

Both the Government of Timor-Leste and Global Industries Group have the same goals to ensure Timor-Leste reaches its full National potential including providing a nutritional school feeding program to all children attending school, incorporating freshly produced and grown Timor-Leste meat, fish, vegetables, fresh milk, and water to all schools Timor-Leste wide (even those schools up in the mountains!).

“We are independently established under respective jurisdictions in 74 countries,” said Francis.
