Armenia discussing criteria for classifying farm land as vacant land

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian parliament on Wednesday, February 10 discussed criteria for classifying agricultural land as vacant land. The aim is to establish the necessary legal framework for identifying unused farm land and creating a database.

The amendment seeks to address the fact that agricultural land is often used inappropriately and ineffectively in almost all the provinces of the country.

Spearheaded by the government, the bill was introduced in the National Assembly by Deputy Minister of Economy Arman Khojoyan.
