Overall comment

Overall comment
Import of error check - Reviewer's overview comment: Like many agroindustrial companies, Camposol benefited from consirable public investment or facilitation (and fiscal favours), like in this case the Chavimochic irrigation project (with private participation) for 47 000 ha in the desert of the coast of northern Peru.
