In September 2018, the Timor-Leste Government decided that a “Zero Plastic Policy” would be soon implemented throughout Timor-Leste which involves the banning of plastic bags. At the seminar when this policy was announced, the former President of the Republic, José Ramos-Horta stated that "Timor as a state, as a nation and as a community, has to carry out its own initiatives to solve the problem of plastic".
