As Secretary of State, Mr. Pires’ priority is to develop Timorese human resources and engage the Timorese people in the petroleum industry. With a team of young, dedicated Timorese geologists and engineers, he is spearheading the petroleum sector reform with the creation of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), the National Oil Company and an Institute of Petroleum and Geology.

In terms of good governance Mr. Pires is augmenting previous efforts by introducing the Timor-Leste Transparency Model (TLTM) to ensure that the people of East Timor are well informed about the petroleum sector.

Mr. Pires has a strong “After Oil” policy, encouraging his Government and people to see oil as only an engine of growth for the economic development and for the nation not to grow dependent on oil and for the Government to invest in the non-oil sector.
