    The Cassa Bridge in Ainaro is completed.


    Over four hundred years of Portuguese rule in East Timor has left a number of examples of Colonial architecture. In the capital, Dili, the ruins of a fort built in 1627 can be seen as well as some Colonial style houses. Baucau's old city also has Colonial architecture from East Timor's past.

    Following the (1999) UN-organized independence referendum, many buildings and homes were destroyed throughout East Timor by anti-independence troops and militias. Reconstruction of sacred buildings, Christian churches and indigenous "uma lulik", began soon after order was restored.
