Timor-Leste Waterways Assessment

Timor-Leste Waterways

There are no lakes with any kind of shipping transportation capability, the rivers in Timor-Leste are dry for most of the year and it is beyond the scope of the LCA to assess the international shipping lines serving Timor-Leste. However there are two features of Ocean transportation based in Dili that are worthy of note.
