Comment on negotiation status
It seems that in 2010 a law was enacted creating the economic zone of 12,923 ha, but that the Aurora Pacific Economic Zone and Freeport Authority still has to negotiate with local communities and landholders to really acquire the land. It moreover seems that it has only acquired a certain part of the planned 12,923 till now.
