&gli/er’s cancellation of a 10.2 illion project to "ild a nitrogen plant on the so"th coast of the
island.
&gli/er had een gi%en all the necessary permits "t then stopped the project after local
people protested eca"se of possile impact on the en%ironment. .he case was seen as a test of how
friendly ."l"miki is towards foreign in%estment.
&gli/er and the ."l"miki go%ernment ha%e now agreed that ."l"miki’s state3owned palm
oil processing company will ac4"ire the project thro"gh a share exchange. &gli/er shareholders will
