Religious establishment (not defined) shall be assigned by the State land areas that they are currently using without any "readjustment thereof". Land includes agricultural and forestry land. Local authorities shall grant land use right certificates for the land on which religious buildings are constructed. Establishments receiving such certificates shall appoint legal representatives who shall be held responsible versus the State for the use of the land allocated to their organizations. Existing land disputes shall be settled prior to the granting of the certificate. Remaining provisions outline the rights and obligations of religious establishments regarding land use rights, the settlement of cases in which previously land has been assigned or exchanged, and some matters of administration.

Implements: Decision No. 187/1999/QD-TTg on renewal of the organization and managerial mechanism at the state forestry farms. (1999-09-16)
