DILI, 22 september 2022 (TATOLI)- CWP Global LTD is committed to supporting Timor-Leste to supply autonomous water in remote areas of Timor-Leste.

This commitment was conveyed by the President of the Carrying Water (CWP) Global LTD Kon Yosuke shortly after a meeting with the Secretary of State for Vocational Training and Employment (SEPFOPE), Alarico do Rosarion, and his delegation at the SEPFOPE Office Cai Coli Dili.

Kon Yosuke said that CWP Global LTD is one of the largest water infrastructure companies in Japan and CWP Global LTD, has also become a partner of the Japanese government through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to supply autonomous water management in Japan and also several countries outside Japan, therefore CWP Global LTD intends to implement the project in Timor – Leste.

“We see Timor-Leste has overflow of water in the country, but communities in remote areas continue to experience water shortages so the country needs to improve water management, for that reason we wish to support Timor-Leste to provide independent water management in rural areas to ensure rural communities can have access to clean water,”

He explained that to work on this project they needed more human resources from Timor-Leste, saying, therefore, today they held a meeting with SEPFOPE to discuss cooperation between the two sides to facilitate training on water autonomy management before The project will be implemented in 2023.

“Our concept aims to contribute to the important development of Timor – Leste by taking the opportunity to support water infrastructure management in rural areas,” he said.
