The provincial People’s Committee said that, pursuing the target of building the district into a new-style rural area, the provincial steering committee for building new-style rural areas and Hung Ha district effectively implemented norms to become the new-style rural area with the help of the whole political system, the assistance of the province and the efforts of the entire Party, soldiers and people of all classes.

So far, Hung Ha has had 25 out of 33 communes meeting the national standards for new-style rural areas, accounting for 75.75%. About 96.6% of people of working age were offered jobs. Average income per capita reached over VND30 million a year and the poverty rate was reduced to 2.43%.

The district also focused on building modern irrigation, canals and electricity systems; works on telecom, public welfare and culture; education and health infrastructure; and rural markets.
