Land expropriation: the MCC`s economic growth limitations analysis identifies existing legal restrictions on land size and re-union as obstacles to commercial agriculture and proposes to liberalize the land market and allow the acquisition of land by foreign companies. Some of these proposals are in line with land reforms and other development assistance programmes that have been in place by the World Bank since the mid-1990s. They do not know the importance of small-scale agriculture, despite the obvious failure of large export-oriented agricultural enterprises around the world.
