“We’ve agreed to pass a law extending the period during which foreigners won’t be allowed to buy agricultural land in Slovakia. It will be a three-year extension,” Radičová said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. The measure, designed to stabilise the agricultural community in Slovakia, will be presented at a government session soon, she added.
