Vice Prime Minister and leader of Strong Ukraine Tihipko believes that land reform would attract billions of investment in the agrarian sector of Ukraine.
So Tigipko commented declared the country's President, Viktor Yanukovych's intention to lift the moratorium on the sale of agricultural land and carry out agrarian reform.
According to Tyhypko, despite the current moratorium for 10 years, the Ukrainian arable land is actually in the market turnover, but this market is - imperfect, and criminalized.
"What, like not selling, we can assume, for example, hardcoded lease for 30-49 years with payment of rent in advance?" - Reflects Tigipko.
As the official said, land reform and the introduction of land in the market turnover will allow current owners of units to receive market rent, rather than depend on the arbitrariness of the tenants.
"The real owners of arable land will take care of the development of agricultural technologies, improve soil fertility. Now timeservers-tenants are not too interested in this. The state in turn will clear and transparent tax base, land tax," - says Tigipko.
According to officials, to begin functioning market requires the adoption of laws, in particular, land market in Ukraine, the State Land Cadastre, the creation of the state land bank.
"The moratorium can be canceled only after making a complete inventory of land, creation of transparent mechanisms for its sales and introducing the necessary limitations. State or local council must have a legally enforceable right to buy land for sale price" - summed up Tigipko.
Recall, the head of the Presidential Administration Sergey Lyovochkin previously stated that in the first half of 2011 a moratorium on the sale of agricultural land destinations in Ukraine can be withdrawn.
Ukraine's Constitutional Court in early December 2009 declared unconstitutional a law on anti-crisis measures in the agricultural sector, which included rules prohibiting the sale of agricultural land until January 1, 2010. This caused a debate among experts and lawyers about the continuing ban on the sale of agricultural land, although the transitional provisions of the Land Code of Ukraine continues to contain the rate of such a ban before the enactment of laws on state land cadastre and land market.
Previously reported that on December 22 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a law to extend until January 1, 2012 moratorium on the sale of farmland and 19 January overcome a presidential veto on the bill.
As previously reported, the Minister of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine Mykola Prisyajnyuk hopes for the abolition of January 1, 2011 operating in the country a moratorium on the sale of agricultural land.
