Resumo: Jari", the group of three enterprises 1 developed by shipping magnate D. K. Ludwig, is an estate in Brazil's State of Para and Federal Terri-tory of Amapa claiming 1,632,121 ha 2 of land straddling the Jari River, a northern tributary of the lower Amazon. Silviculture, pulp manufacture, rice growing, mining and logging are among Jari's main activites. The Jari project is currently at a major "crossroads" as final details are settled for the sale of this tremendous operation, with control passing to a consortium of 27 Brazilian firms led by mining entrepreneur Augusto Trajano de Azevedo Antunes (Veja, 16 de dezembro de 1981). Continuing heavy losses s have been a major factor in Ludwig's decision to sell the projectin which he had invested over US$ 1billion, for the much lower figure of US$ 280 million (US$ 180 million in debts assumed + US$ 100 million payable over three years) 4.
