Overall comment

Overall comment
Import of error check - Coordinator's overview comment: Review all elements. Oxfam Hong Kong assert the investor name is unknown: matrix does not contain specific data describing investor enough to reasonably assess whether it is a Chinese legal entity Import of error check - Reviewer's overview comment: "In the first half of 2008, it emerged that China’s Ministry of Agriculture was drafting a central government policy to encourage domestic firms to acquire land abroad for farming purposes ...By mid-year, the draft policy was reportedly put on hold for the time being." so this is not a specific land acquisition deal, but a general description of policy by the government.
