Import of error check - Reviewer's overview comment: Crosschecked data in E with the source of verifaction provided. NOTE: however, another source (see comment in column E) cited that the compnay has 50000 hectares. Import of other remarks regarding the investment: Indigenous people supported the project as they saw in it an opportunity to get rid of landlords elite, other means speculative use of land by elite holders
