Green party LMP welcomes farmland purchase ban extension

<p>Budapest, December 21 (MTI) - The opposition green party Politics Can Be Different welcomes the European Commission s decision to allow Hungary to extend a moratorium on purchases of farm land by foreigners by three years, party MP Rebeka Szabo said in a statement on Tuesday.</p>

The extension of the moratorium will allow time to prepare a rural strategy targeting sustainability, Szabo said, and urged the government to start preparing without delay a policy for regulating rural land use.

    It is necessary to prevent and put an end to already started land speculation practices and the concentration of land ownership, Szabo said. The interests of local residents working on their land for a living must be protected and this is also in the interest of Hungarian consumers, she added.
