Summary
1. Timor-Leste's initial efforts to develop a stable and healthy economy were interrupted by the civil unrest of the past two years. Following independence in 2002, the early adoption of prudent fiscal and monetary policies contributed to low inflation and accelerating economic growth, while the onset of oil/gas revenue inflows brightened the economic outlook. However, the domestic violence that first erupted in April 2006 brought about economic contraction and diminished prospects. 1 Although the economy has now partially rebounded, non-oil GDP per capita remains below 2002 levels and the country is the least developed in the region. Progress toward the country's development objectives, including the Millennium Development Goals, has been limited. 2 That said, Timor-Leste's large petroleum wealth, if effectively harnessed, still offers the potential for a prosperous future
