TEMPO SEMANAL A weekly newspaper for every suco

TEMPO SEMANAL is a new, free weekly newspaper aimed at reaching every village in Timor-Leste, making it a truly national newspaper. The paperís mission is to objectively and responsibly inform the nation in the national language, Tetum, on social, political and economic affairs.

TEMPO SEMANAL is dedicated to addressing the serious fragmentation of communications in Timor-Leste by distributing an informative weekly to all 442 villages via a range of networks.
