In a yesterday dialogue program jointly organized by HCMC People’s Council and Voice of HCMC to discuss the government’s new rural plan and relating issues, more than VND64 trillion ($2.7 million) was reportedly poured into the plan.
Of the amount, state budget contributed just 16 percent while the remaining came from social contributions.
Accordingly, there has been a rise in production and residents in the countryside have gained higher income.
Households made more money annually in the past ten years, from average VND15.7 million ($672) per capita yearly in 2008 to VND54.7 million ($2,341) in 2018.
The rate of poverty households with income of below VND21 million per capita yearly is 0.6 percent in five outlying districts.
City authorities targeted that 56 communes of five suburban districts will finish the plan by 2020.
