The list is terrific
for avid TL-watchers, with a quality of discussion
seen in many other such forums. - Robin
I would like to take this
opportunity to thank you for the excellent work you have been
doing these last years in keeping all people interested in Timor-Leste's
present and future duly informed. Your objectivity and professionalism,
providing an essential space for everybody to express itself
freely has been a great contribution to consolidate Timor-Leste's
emerging democracy. It is an example of how to give voice to
the civil society and others at relatively low costs, an example
that many other countries should follow. - Pedro
I would also like to
take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful service
you provide to us all; the sharing of information is crucial
to all of us involved in/ with Timor-Leste and we would be lost
without ETAN! -Siobhan
Congratulations for this
excellent source of up-to-date information
about Timor Leste.
Keep up the good work! - NoŽlle
And I shouldn't pass
up the chance to say a general thanks for the great work you
guys are doing at ETAN. It's four and a half years since I left
and I still feel in touch with what is going on there
thanks to ETAN. So thank you! - Megan
