DILI, 24 november 2023 (TATOLI) – Shanghai Construction Group Timor-Leste Branch, with the support of the Chinese Government, has completed the construction of a swimming pool for children at the Palace of the President, in Dili.

The Chinese government, through its ambassador to Timor-Leste, Wang Wenli handed over the swimming pool to the office of the President, which was attended by President Horta himself.

Horta expressed his heartfelt appreciation for the support of Chinese government: “I’m very grateful because I asked for this support a few months ago and they fulfilled my request. I told them I wanted to build an attractive swimming pool for the children and they made it happen.”

The Head of State said that the pool is also equipped with bathrooms, and toilets for children: “Two female staff will be hired to supervise the children. Not only that, I also plan to build more similar swimming pools in villages to help children enjoy their childhood.”

Wenli was delighted with the handover of the swimming pool, saying it was part of Beijing’s commitment to fostering relations with Timor-Leste.

“I want to encourage the children of Timor-Leste to enjoy their time swimming and playing in this pool,” said Ambassador.
