The effective support of the World Bank and the
implementation of the national programme on building new-style rural areas are
considered a leverage to reduce property in the commune.
Specifically, the World Bank has aided over 3.7

chickens. The commune has also invested in concretising over 2km of roads and
nearly 1,000m of canals to serve production.
National Programme 135 has supported nearly 4.2
billion VND for the commune to build water supply facilities and restructure crops.
More than 1.5 billion VND have been poured into the building of rural roads and
helping plump growing households improve yield and quality of fruit.
Thanks to the implementation of the policies for
ethnic people, Pa Co commune has recorded positive changes, especially more
convenient transportation. The per capita income increased to 11 million VND at
present from 7.2 million VND in 2014. However, about 28 percent of the poor

conference in Hang Kia and Pa Co communes will create a momentum for
sustainable poverty reduction./.
