No doubt, there are additional land purchases by Chinese money not reported to the government.
More ominous is the acquisition of farmland by Chinese capital. For example, Nike Men's Shoe Air Force 1 Mid 07 315123-029,Cheap 238906 Nike Dunk High Men Super Mario White Red Shoes,NIKE AIR ZOOM PEGASUS 31 Titanium/Total Orange/Bright Citrus,.
