In addition to these textbooks, in order to enrich the East Timor publishing fund, we have also published works in other fields, among which we highlight the History and Geography of the country, as well as its poetry. We are proud to have some of Timor-Leste’s most distinguished figures as our authors.
Our already long-term collaboration with the country led us to the establishment of Timor Editora, dedicated to general publishing and Timorese law.
