Comment on land area
The company called “Myanmar Skylink Agro- Forestry Company Limited” (short: Skylink) came to this area in 2000. In 2002, Skylink was stopped again. The Forest Department cancelled the contract with Skylink. After this expropriation in August 2002, the Myanmar Perennial Crops Entreprise (MPCE) temporarily managed the oil palm plantations. Myanmar Economic Holdings Ltd. (MEHL) received the cultivation permission from Forest Department in May 2003. After another 8 years, in June 2011, MEHL signed a 30 years leasing contract with the Forest Department.
