While the relevant Committee of the Verkhovna Rada is discussing changes to the law on agricultural land circulation in Ukraine, the head of the Association of landowners in Ukraine Dmitry Livc during the open press-marathon on the topic of land reform has estimated the cost of a hectare in the future.
According to Luca, the price of land will rise in any case, but at different rates depending on the market model that will be selected.
“If we are talking about the issue of pricing [on the ground], there’s always the demand side and the supply side. If we limit the demand, respectively, then the price will not increase as fast as it could grow. According to our calculations, in terms of the liberal model [the land market], the price can rise to a value of 5.5 thousand dollars per hectare 10 years after the enactment of the law. <…> We can expect that the average cost per hectare of land will be not lower than the appraisal, but will fluctuate in the range of 1.5-2 thousand dollars per hectare in the first year after the opening of the land market. If we are talking about less liberal models with concentration or without, without foreigners – the price of land will grow slower. She will be about 4-4,5 thousand dollars per hectare in 10 years”, – explained Libc.As reported, on November 13 the Verkhovna Rada was the start of land reform. Under the reform plan to clean up the inventory, keep all the registers, and to streamline land relations and give the opportunity to dispose of their land to its owners. The opening of the land market is scheduled for 2020.
