Khanh Hoa develops rural areas

The south central coastal province of Khanh Hoa will mobilise over VND3.1 trillion ($136 million) for rural development.

The money will be mainly sourced from the State budget as part of a plan promulgated by the provincial People’s Committee to implement the national target programme on building new-style rural areas between 2017 and 2020.

The locality strives to have nearly 62 percent of communes meeting the programme’s criteria by 2020.

It aims to ensure the development harmony between rural and urban areas by developing new residential areas and upgrading the existing ones.

Local authorities prioritise investments in transport infrastructure, irrigation network, medical stations, and schools for 20 communes in the mountainous districts of Khanh Son and Khanh Vinh.

Such fundamental criteria as roads, electricity, and rural markets will receive attention as well.

The province will also focus on developing production and agricultural restructuring as well as shifting rural economic structure to improve local income.

At the end of 2016, Khanh Hoa has 26 out of the 94 communes recognised as new-style rural areas.
