2014 Survey of Travelers to Timor-Leste
A research publication launched by The Asia Foundation’s office in Timor-Leste proves that the country’s tourism sector is indeed promising. Based on inbound arrivals, the study estimates that the industry is currently worth US$14.6 million per annum – placing it close behind coffee, which remains Timor-Leste’s primary export in the non-oil economy, at US$15 million per annum. The study also indicates high satisfaction where 83% of travelers believed their experience met their expectations and almost equal proportions said they would recommend Timor-Leste to their friends and family.
The 2014 Survey of Travelers to Timor-Leste, conducted in partnership between The Asia Foundation and Timor-Leste’s Ministry of Tourism, not only quantifies the economic contribution of tourism but also provides an indication of the prerequisites required to further develop Timor-Leste’s tourism industry.
