The Sejm amended the provisions of the act on suspending the sale of real estate owned by the State Treasury Agricultural Property Stock and amending certain acts on March 17, 2021. The act was signed by Andrzej Duda on April 21, 2021
The basic form of using the Agricultural Property Stock of the State Treasury is now lease.
