NDO/ VNA – A delegation of officials from the Steering Committee for the northwestern region visited and presented gifts to policy beneficiaries and poor households in difficult communes in Sin Ho border district, northern Lai Chau province, on December 27.

Deputy head of the committee Truong Xuan Cu Cu, who led the delegation, encouraged the local people to overcome their difficulties, and expressed his belief that they will gain a better life by changing from old farming habits to new ones that employ advanced technologies.

Sin Ho is a mountainous district mainly populated by ethnic minority people, such as Mong, Thai and Dao groups, with low living conditions and educational level.

Poor households account for 29% of the province’s population.
