The future of a nation determined by the quality of its people through how qualified the education system is. As a young and vibrant nation, Timor-Leste is still in the very root of developing its human resource capacity through education; therefore, quality has to come along in the same path as the education development, in particular higher education.

The program of V constitutional government for higher education underlines the implementation of a robust system of quality assurance, registration of all national qualifications on the National Qualification Frameworks, established in Decree-Law No. 36/2011 of 17 August. Simultaneously, the program of V government recognizes the need for development of national quality assurance. This fact has raised an awareness of the Ministry of Education (MoE) to establish Agência Nacional para a Avaliação e Acreditação Academica (ANAAA) or the National Agency for Academic Assessment and Accreditation (NAAAA).
