Clearly defining that the new rural development program is designed to improve all aspects of material and spiritual life for people, in the past years, the Party and the governments at all levels have focused resources for new rural development, mobilized resources from the people and improved the roles and responsibility of each person in economic development, and complete new rural development criteria in the locality.

As a typical economic performer of Ho Thau commune (Hoang Su Phi district), over the past time, the life of the Dao people in Tan Phong village has been significantly improved. With the climate and soil suitable for growing and developing Shan Tuyet tea trees, local authorities mobilized people to better care for existing tea areas, and apply science and technology to intensive farming to increase productivity.

Then, the economic value of tea plants has been significantly increased. The average income of tea-growing households reached VND50-80 million a year. Besides, people are raising commercial buffaloes, cows and fowls on a larger scale. With its intensive approach, by the end of 2019, Ho Thau commune fulfilled 15 out of 19 new countryside criteria. The average income of a villager was VND28 million a year. Currently, local authorities are focusing all resources to achieve all remaining targets to be certified a new countryside commune in 2020.

At the end of 2017, the Party, the government and the people of Phu Linh commune (Vi Xuyen district) happily received the certificate of new countryside standards. The current success comes from ongoing efforts of each family and each village to build the new countryside, together with the dynamic and firm leadership and direction of the Party Committee and the government of the commune. Mr. Nguyen Quoc Cuong, Secretary of the Phu Linh Party Committee, said, it is certain that this is an achievement of the Party Committee and the people of the commune. Villages fiercely mobilized the people to promote economic development, donate land, and contribute workdays to build transport infrastructure, cultural facilities, schools, public works, and other welfare programs. Muong Nam is one of the typical villages of the commune.

According to the report, by the end of 2019, Ha Giang province had 38 out of 177 communes meet new rural standards and no communes had fewer than seven criteria. On average, a commune fulfilled 12 criteria. In the 2010-2019 period, local people donated more than 3 million square meters of land, contributed nearly 2.9 million working days and relocated over 38,500 animal rearing facilities, upgraded and restored 5,900 km of rural roads, built asphalt roads to administrative centers of all communes. More than 35,000 families upgraded their house floors. These substantive results affirmed proper policies of the Party and the authorities at all levels on new rural development.
