The land is fertile and valuable and is eagerly sought after by foreign capitalista. Hówever, they are slow to iuvest on account of the unsettled condition of the goverumeut. For the most part, capitalists are now taking options, pending the establishment of some sort of stable govermnent. There is also some trouble in obtaining clear titJes, especially in what are known as crown lands and Tands confiscated by the crown.
