Crocodiles in the Timor Sea: development and socio-economic implications of the maritime resources dispute
Date: Tuesday 16 February
Venue: State Library of Victoria, 328 Swanston St, Melbourne
Attendance is free
This forum will explore the development and socio-economic implications of the maritime resources dispute in the Timor Sea. The negotiations that have occurred between Australia, Timor-Leste and Indonesia over the petroleum reserves in the Timor Sea have ongoing impacts on relations between these three close neighbours particularly development of the new nation of Timor-Leste.
The financial implications of current international negotiations and legal disputes are huge. Independent Timorese NGO watchdog Lao Hamutuk, estimates that the total amount of oil revenue received by the Australian government between 1999 and 2014 which they believe should belong to Timor-Leste is just under five billion U.S. dollars (USD$5 000 000 000). The national development implications and the socio-economic impact on the Timorese will be discussed by three speakers with long-term experience in Timor Leste.
