Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has just signed the 2020 Working Programme of the Steering Committee for the National Target Programme on New Rural Construction for the 2016-2020 period.
Accordingly, Vietnam expects to have 60% of its rural communes qualify as new rural areas by the end of 2020. There are at least 15 more district-level units qualified as new rural areas compared to 2019.
At the same time, the programme also aims improve the effectiveness of the implementation of the One Commune - One Product (OCOP) programme, with about 2,400 products qualified for standards of the OCOP.
As of the end of May, the number of communes meeting the criteria of a new rural area stands at 5,177, accounting for 58.2% of the total number of communes, the smallest official administrative unit in Vietnam.
126 districts and towns among the total of 664 across 45 provinces and centrally-governed cities have been recognised as having completed the new rural building programme, with nine having all of their communes meeting the criteria.
