Investment needed for agriculture, rural area building

The mountainous district of Quan Hoa in north-central Thanh Hoa province has been following the new-style rural area model over recent years, in line with developing its economy and supporting technology transfer in production. And its efforts have paid off.

Ha Van Thai’s farm has had technology transferred by Phú Nghiêm commune’s project on new-style rural area building, and he now earns roughly 4,300 USD a year. 

Since meeting new-style rural standards, local households in Ban Pong-Ka Me village have seen their livelihoods improve remarkably. Each household now raises five cows, for a village total of nearly 600. Most local people are also now involved in planting forests, earning 1,500 USD each per year. 

Over the last five years, the people of Phu Nghiem have contributed 3,600 workdays and donated more than 28,500 square metres of land, building a new-style rural area in line with economic development while calling for investment in agriculture. 

It is expected that by the end of this year there will be three more mountainous communes in Bá Thước, Ngọc Lặc, and Quan Sơn districts meeting standards, thus improving local livelihoods./.
