NDO/VNA – The northern province of Hoa Binh’s Hoa Binh city was recognised for having fulfilled the new-style rural building mission as said in the Prime Minister’s Decision No.269/QĐ-TTg dated March 8, 2019.

The decision was presented to the provincial People’s Committee on April 7 by Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue, who is also head of the Steering Committee for the National Target Programmes.

According to Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Quach Tung Duong, thanks to the engagement of the local political system, all seven communes in the city, namely Dan Chu, Thong Nhat, Su Ngoi, Hoa Binh, Yen Mong, Thai Thinh and Minh Trung, were recognised as new style rural areas after eight years implementing the national target programme on new-style rural area building.

During the period, the city worked to mobilise nearly VND95 billion (US$4.1 million) from local people for the construction of transport system, irrigational system, electricity infrastructure, culture houses and sport zones.

It is home to more than 100 effective economic models, 120 hectares of high-quality rice, 1,000 fish breeding cages, and some 150,000 heads of livestock and poultry.

Local income per capita is estimated at VND57 million (US$2,450) a year, the rate of poverty household is 1.31%, and about 91% of rural workers have stable jobs.

On the occasion, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Quang presented certificates of merit to 10 organisations and 20 individuals for their excellent contributions to the new-style rural area building programme.
