Oé-Cusse Ambeno


Oé-Cusse is an enclave of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste limited to the north by the Savu Sea and the South, East and West by Indonesian territory. It was the landing place of the Portuguese nearly 500 years ago, on the beach of Lifau. It has an area of 814 km2 with 48 km of coastline, divided into four sub-regions (Pante Macassar; Oé-Silo; Nitibe and Passabe) and 18 sukus.

Besides the history of the Timorese nation having started in Oé-Cusse, the fact is that it is one of the poorest regions, with more than 60% of the population living below the poverty line, was also one of the reasons why it was chosen to start a new future for the country. A future committed to Prosperity, Peace and Performance.

Oé-Cusse will be known as a Green City, where environmental responsibility will always be present, starting with the features and quality of its Infrastructures.
With regard to energy production, priority will be given to production with renewable and clean sources.
