Por consiguiente, los promotores privados, así como los fondos de cobertura privados, ocuparán y desarrollarán las tierras que han sido el hogar de pueblos indígenas durante miles de años.

Our sugar is made from sugarcane. And sugarcane is not planted in trees or in the air, it’s planted in the ground, in the soil, on land. It’s the bedrock of our investment.
