Abstract/Citation: Provides for a major change of the agricultural land ownership, use and management as well as in the structure of the farming real estate market. Redefines the territorial structure of farms, counteracts excessive concentration of agricultural real estate, and ensures that agricultural activity is performed by appropriate persons. Inter alia, prevents that farming land is purchased by foreigners or by nationals with no farming education and grants leaseholders a preemption right. Establishes a National Farming Real Estate Agency, acting on behalf of the Ministry of State Treasury, having a preemption right as well as market regulation powers, in particular the right to intervene in land price determination and real estate transactions.
