Romanian Land Market Regulatory Framework: The Legislative Corrections In 2014


  • Lucian LUCA

    () (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


The paper investigates the way in which a land market in its early stage, like the Romanian land market, can affect food security at national level. Starting from the official registrations of agricultural land transactions after the accession to the EU, the paper analyzes the elements with potential disturbing effects upon the land market in Romania. The end of the transitory restriction on the acquisition of agricultural land areas by foreigners, starting with January 1, 2014, is investigated in the context of the specific Romanian farm structures, including the farms that are already owned by foreigners. The evaluation of the legislative regulatory proposal on the sale-purchase of agricultural land had in view the different stages of the draft law, from its early forms up to the version promulgated by the President.
