In case the lease is made with the Royal Government and the land is not titled, the lease shall be signed by the Minister of the Ministry of Economy and Finance together with relevant ministers or heads of institutions, or provincial-municipal governors who are the trustee authorities of the said land. The land concession or long-term lease shall be mentioned on the land title certificate at the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction.
