(HBO) – Hoa Binh province has given a facelift to rural areas, improved local livelihoods, and reduced poverty rate thanks to implementation of the provincial Party Committee’s Resolution 16 dated August 11, 2017 on enhancing leadership in carrying out the national target programme on sustainable poverty reduction by 2020 with a vision to 2030.


The youths in Suoi Hoa commune, Tan Lac district launch the "Green Sunday” campaign – a voluntary activity in underprivileged areas.

With specific policies, the province attained significant achievements in the sustainable poverty reduction after three years. Due attention has been paid to construction of essential infrastructure in difficult and particularly difficult localities, helping the poor get access to basic social services like accommodation, fresh water, health care, education, and social welfare, among others.

The policies have contributed to shifting local agriculture from small-scale production to commodity production. Besides, local famers have focused on applying advanced technologies into cultivation, forming production chains coupled with origin tracing of agricultural products.

The project on supporting 36 poorest villages and hamlets was integrated with Programme 135, bringing in positive results such as reducing the rate of poor and near poor households, providing power and building roads for difficult villages, and developing production to meet locals’ demand.

Particularly, the poverty rate has been cut 3.6 percent per year on average, forecast to stand at 8.56 percent by the end of this year./.
