Overall comment

Overall comment
The company has land elsewhere in Ethiopia- see #5636. The land leased under #5636 has not been handed over to the company. As such, the company has started on 200 ha at the college and is looking to expand here to 1000 ha (perhaps to cancel lease on #5636 completely then).
