Houston, Texas (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
Lex Mundi has published a new Global Practice Guide on Restrictions and Incentives on Ownership of Farmland which includes substantive content in 10 jurisdictions around the world.
Agricultural expansion through farmland has been a key driver of growth in several parts of the world to cope with the increasing needs for food. In many different jurisdictions, the ownership and possession of farmland by foreigners has been subject to restrictions and incentives.
The guide provides an outline of how this issue is treated by different countries, allowing a farmland company or investor to have an insight of potential opportunities and restrictions.
Prepared by members of the Lex Mundi Agribusiness Practice Group, this guide is part of the Lex Mundi Global Practice Guide series. All Lex Mundi Global Practice Guides are made available to the public on the Lex Mundi website at http://www.lexmundi.com/globalpracticeguides.
