Poles Easing Land Laws

WARSAW () -- The Polish government approved a draft bill Tuesday to make it easier for foreigners to buy land, which should bring Poland closer to membership in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a deputy interior minister said.

"The government approved a draft bill on land and real-estate purchases by foreigners that liberalizes the regulations and ... will help our efforts to join the OECD," Jerzy Zimowski told a news conference after a government session.
