The Serbian National Assembly passed with 132 votes in favour and 13 against a set of amendments to the Law on Agricultural Land.
Beta newswire reported that the law allows EU citizens to buy arable land in Serbia, but prevents full liberalization, when provisions of the Serbia-EU Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) come into force. This equalises the rights of Serbian citizens and those from the EU.

Foreigners from EU countries will now be able to buy up two hectares of arable land in Serbia which include at least ten years of residence in Serbia, among other conditions.
