First settled by the Portuguese in 1520, the eastern part of the island of Timor was annexed by Indonesia in 1976. In 1999, the UN intervened and formed a transitional administration providing the country with its governance that communicates directly with the East Timorese to ensure their participation in the administration. The economy of the mountainous country is based on agricultural produce, pearls, and fishing.
