Abstract

Trading, agriculture, transportation and communication as well as services sectors are the prime contributors of the regional gross of domestic product in the island of Timor. However, the increasing of such priority sectors was relatively constant which might be occurred due to inappropriate efforts in integrating the transportation infrastructure and potential social-economic activities intra and/or inner districts. This paper focusing on how to increase such regional social-economic structure by developing better transportation services system which is assumed could attract tourism traveling number, i.e. based on integration between railways transportation system and local natural resources and/or social-economic activities. The indication of technical, economic, social and environmental as well as institutional arrangement feasibility then was analyzed using SWOT model. It was strongly indicated that the development of transportation network services based on railways network could trigger the augmentation of not only tourism trips but also the type, number, scale and spatial distribution of social-economic activities along the Northern coast of the island of Timor, as well as the regional gross of domestic product of both countries
