Accordingly, the province will mobilize resources for investing in socio-economic infrastructure in ethnic minority-inhabited and mountainous regions, including flood-avoiding roads, bridges leading to extremely disadvantaged villages, irrigation works, water pumping stations and the dyke system serving production and people’s daily lives.

Apart from assisting ethnic minority people cope with shortages of residential and production land, production and daily water, the province will also support poor ethnic minority people to build and repair houses; upgrade water supply constructions and the power system for providing electricity for 100% of families in mountainous areas.

Together with expanding the application of technology into production, the province has made favourable conditions for ethnic minority people to create start-ups, develop economic development models, establish small-and medium-sized businesses, process agricultural products, and create jobs for local residents.

Plans have been made to boost education, vocational training, healthcare and employment development for ethnic minority people; and increase their income and living standard.

In 2016 and 2017, the Party and State assisted the province with over VND600 billion in poverty reduction policies and programs, as well as those for ethnic minority people. Thanks to the capital, socio-economic infrastructure and ethnic minority people’s living standard has been remarkably improved, with a reduction in the poverty rate./.
