"East Timor now has revenue from offshore oil and gas reserves, but little of it has gone to develop villages, which still rely on subsistence farming. Nearly half the population lives in extreme poverty."
"The economy of East Timor is ranked as a low income economy by the World Bank. It is placed 133th by Human Development Index, indicating a medium level of human development. 20% of the population is unemployed, and 52.9% live on less than US $1.25 a day. About half of the population is illiterate."
