The g7+ Headquarters is hosted in Dili, Timor-Leste
The g7+ European Hub is located in Lisbon, Portugal
In early April 2017, the g7+ leadership, comprised of Eminent Person H.E. Xanana Gusmão and H.E. Momodu Lamin Kargbo, Chair of g7+ (2016 – 2018), visited Lisbon. This visit resulted in the Lisbon Municipality granting an office space in central Lisbon to become the g7+ hub in Europe.
The office was officially inaugurated in the summer of 2018 with the presence of the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Portugal, H.E. Teresa Ribeiro. The office allows the g7+ to serve our members better and remain actively engaged with development partners in Europe.
In May 2020, the Government of Timor-Leste made its first amendment to decree law no.14 of 17 August 2018 regarding the organic law of the VIII Constitutional Government and pronounced “The existence of the g7+ secretariat, which, being a service of an international organization, should not be included in the organizational structure of the Government of one of the Member States of that same international organization”. Therefore, the g7+ Secretariat now stands as international organization in Timor-Leste.
