Trade Shows

We are still receiving an occasional email generated by Timor Leste’s participation at BITE 2007 (Beijing International Travel Expo) last June. Now, the Timor Leste Embassy to Beijing is working on an International Eco-Tourism Exhibition in Nanchang next October. Below is an email from Tony Duarte at the Embassy about promotional material and also some information about the Chinese outbound travel market.


Dear Everyone,

Greetings from the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste in Beijing, China

We are, at this stage, compiling information in relation to our intended participation in China (Nanchang) International Eco-tourism Exhibition and Award Tourism Conference, which will be held from 21 – 23 October 2007, in which we are going to market Timor-Leste’s tourism attractions to potential buyers of Timor-Leste tourism packages. The event’s primary focus is on eco-tourism.

For the event, we are going to produce a booklet, which will be of interest to the visiting potential buyers.

Should you have tourism packages on offer that you wish to be included in our brochure that will be of interest to potential Chinese and other international visitors during the event, please send us the necessary information about your company and the packages on offer.

Please note that we do not charge any fees. Our request to include your company’s profile and packages on offer is free of charge.

Should you have further question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Warmest Regards,

Tony Duarte
