Developing Agrarian Structure Through The Disposal Of State-Owned Agricultural Land In Croatia


  • Svrznjak, Kristina
  • Franic, Ramona


The paper analyzes the disposal of state-owned agricultural land in the Republic of Croatia in comparison with the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) that went through similar agrarian reforms. There are 890,214 ha of state-owned agricultural land in Croatia. The data shows that Croatia has not managed to accomplish the goals set by Programs for the disposal of state-owned agricultural land and only 20.6% of the state-owned agricultural land is offered for disposal by public tenders (sales, lease, concession, return and other purposes), similar to CEE. Therefore, the disposal of stateowned agricultural land is primarily important for the consolidation of farms and increasing their current average size.
