In his opening speech, Vice Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Bui Van Khanh said during over two years of building model new-style rural residential areas and gardens in the province, localities actively responded to the effort with the involvement of Party units, authorities, the Vietnam Fatherland Front, mass organisations and people from all walks of life. The movement has so far achieved encouraging results.

When the movement began, 69 residential areas and 219 gardens registered to join. So far, as many as 46 model new-style residential areas and 151 model gardens have been recognised. In the near future, districts and Hoa Binh city plan to build 100 model new-style residential areas and 177 model gardens.

In order to spread the movement, the provincial People’s Committee held the contest for the 2018-2020 period and earmarked funding to help localities build green and clean landscapes at a total cost of over 28.6 billion VND. 38 new-style rural residential areas and 47 model gardens were selected by district and municipal authorities to compete in the contest at provincial level.

In the model new-style rural residential area category, the A prize went to Ho 1 hamlet (Ngoc Luong commune, Yen Thuy district) while B prize was presented to La Van Cau hamlet (Thuong Coc commune, Lac Son district); Doi hamlet (Ba Hang Doi township, Lac Thuy district); Sau Thuong hamlet (Thanh Cao commune, Luong Son district). Ten hamlets won the C prize and 22 others earned the consolation prize. As for the model garden category, the A prize was presented to the garden of Tran Quoc Hoan’s family in Doi hamlet (Ba Hang Doi township). Three others won the B prize, 10 with C prize and 25 consolation prize.

Regarding the OCOP Programme, 54 products across the province registered to join. Via evaluation and classification of OCOP products, 44 products owned by 39 entities scored more than 50 points and were recognised as the province’s OCOP products for 2020. As of December 31, the province would have 75 OCOP products, or 25 higher than the set target.

In order to honour outstanding collectives and individuals, leaders of the provincial Party Committee, People’s Committee and National Assembly deputy delegation presented certificates of merit to model new-style rural residential areas and model gardens, and certificates to OCOP products meeting three- and four-starred standards.

To turn the effort into a widespread movement, laying the foundation to build new-style rural communes at advanced standards, Khanh asked departments, agencies and units to raise public awareness of the campaign while continuing to fine-tune policies and mechanisms to support the building of new-style rural areas in remote, mountainous andespecially disadvantaged areas./.
