Comment on nature of the deal
in 2007 the company offered villagers "to lease their land for 18 years at 320 RMB/mu/year ... Although there were households that did not at first wish to rent out their land, all eventually agreed. The following year, the [company] began approaching farmers with an offer of 4,320 RMB/mu in additional cash in return for a permanent transfer of the land use rights. By 2009, all the villagers had nullified their earlier leases and resigned new contracts giving up their land in perpetuity" (Liu 2013:13).
