Water company Águas de Portugal Timor to start operating again

13 March 2013

Portuguese water group Águas de Portugal (AdP) plans to re-open Timorese water company Águas de Portugal Timor to provide water supply, sanitation and waste collection services, director Álvaro Castello-Branco said in Dili.

The director, who is due to end his four-day visit to Timor Wednesday, told Portuguese news agency Lusa that the country had conditions to re-launch the business so that the “company can once again be a Portuguese presence and a Portuguese contribution to the development of East Timor.”

Álvaro Castello-Branco added that Águas de Portugal Timor would once again have its own director within the next month or two, and that they would have the job of re-launching the business.

Portuguese state group AdP operates in Angola, Mozambique and Brazil and also works in Azerbaijan and Morocco. (macauhub)
