The average GRDP per capita was estimated at 64.5 million VND as of the late 2020.

"Self-resilience must be exercised in the whole Party organisation”, he said, adding that not any locality could prosper without the spirit of self-resilience, including Hoa Binh. At the same time, resources for socio-economic development must be attracted.

It is also working on the master plan on provincial development for the 2021-2030 period with a vision to 2050, improving urbanisation rate, expanding existing urban areas in combination with shopping outlets, thus creating an important driving force for local socio-economic development.
