Agency for Real Estate Cadastre, Macedonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of
The Government of RM has identified AREC, as a significant part in the governmental overall program as a catalyst to transition to a market economy and to support private investment and business creation.
The number of days to record the purchase or sale of property or mortgages dropped from 30 days in 2005 to just one day. AREC is widely recognized as a valuable asset for the real estate market growth, demonstrated by the increase not just in the number of transactions but also in the number of mortgages, both of which grew exponentially: the number of property transactions more than tripled, while the number of mortgages more than quintupled. Increased numbers of foreign and domestic investments, such as Greenfield investments, have a direct influence on the Government Development Agenda, improvement of the economic growth and competitiveness on a permanent basis, higher employment, higher living standards and quality of life.
Improving Land Administration – Strategical Outlook
In many countries around the world, the trend of building and maintaining efficient land administration and spatial data infrastructures has expanded rapidly in the last couple of decades. Efficient land administration depends on the efficient response of land administration organizations, transparent procedures and information technologies supporting the keeping, maintaining, archiving, and disseminating of data and information.
Three different land administration systems (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia) in Central and Southeastern Europe are briefly presented, together with strategical orientation to execute the primary function of efficient land administration as well as to deal with challenges and changes.
All three of these counties have made remarkable progress towards meeting the national and citizens’ needs and requirements, which in the long term will be demonstrated by achieving sustainable land administration development.
Finding Common Ground
1Kadaster, Netherlands, The; 2ATR/BPN Indonesia
Indonesia has the ambition to register all individual landrights by 2025. The estimated number of individual parcels is around 110 million. The organisation tasked with this effort is ATR/BPN, the Ministry of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Development. ATR/BPN has adopted a multipath strategy to face this challenge. They strengthen and enhance the internal and external surveying capacity, diversify registration qualities to suit specific land administration purposes and seek a collaborative approach to land registration. The partners in this approach will come from ATR/BPN, Kadaster, civil society, private sector innovators and rural communities. Two pilots will be organised to validate the effects of the approach amongst rural communities with varying attitudes towards land registration. Within these pilots, a Fit For Purpose approach to land administration will be implemented balancing cost, time and quality factors with the actual land administration purposes to be served.
