The programme has ten component projects, focusing on solving the shortage of
land for housing and farming as well as clean water; arranging and stabilising
the living conditions of residents in difficult areas; developing sustainable
agricultural and forestry production; building essential infrastructure system;
improving the quality of education and training to develop human resources;
preserving and promoting the traditional cultural values of ethnic minorities
in association with tourism development; improving health care services for
people; implementing gender equality; investing in the development of ethnic
minority groups with very few people and groups facing many difficulties;
strengthening communications in the ethnic minority-inhabited and mountainous
Hoa Binh has 145 out of 151 communes, wards and towns which are ethnic
minority-inhabited and mountainous areas with 86 villages and hamlets facing
extreme difficulties. In the past years, the province has prioritised the
allocation of human resources to investment programmes and projects for ethnic
minority-inhabited and mountainous areas, especially those with extremely
difficult conditions. The efforts have made positive impacts on people's lives,
creating a motivation for the development of ethnic minority-inhabited and
mountainous areas, gradually narrowing the development gaps among
Mountainous areas have seen many positive changes. However, according to the
provincial Committee for Ethnic Minority Affairs, due to a low starting point,
the living conditions of people from ethnic minority groups in the villages and
communes with extremely difficult economic conditions remained poor. They
mostly live on small-scaled agricultural and forestry production. Their
livelihood remains unstable, and their access to social service is still
limited. Although the ratio of poor households has decreased, the risk of
falling back into poverty is high, while the quality of human resources is low,
with modest capacity of local officials. In addition, gender equality remains a
problem among ethnic minority groups, along with outdated customs such as child
marriage, consanguineous marriage, social evils, and socio-economic development
gaps among regions.
In this context, the building and approval of the National Target Programme on
socio-economic development in ethnic minority-inhabited and mountainous areas
in the province has an important and urgent significance, aiming to promote
sustainable development, consolidate and enhance people's confidence in the
Party and State.
The objectives of the ten component projects in the period of 2021 - 2025
include doubling income of people from ethnic minority groups in 2020; reducing
the ratio of poor households by 2.5-3 percent each year; bringing 50 percent of
communes and villages out of the list of areas with extremely difficult
conditions; building roads for automobiles to 100 percent of communes,
concreting 90 percent of roads connecting the centres of communes and villages;
upgrading 100 percent of schools and health care stations; and establishing
public internet service supply centres in all communes./.
