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, Love Reebok Classic Gl 6000 Mid - High-Top Trainers - Collegiate Royal/Chalk W68i6396,Adidas Jeremy Scott Unisex White Red Shoes Model:A344High-fashion Reebok Classic Npc Ii - Trainers - White V53r6556,.
