Hanoi continues promoting the implementation of the national programme on new-style rural areas.

Hanoi is striving for 100 percent of its rural districts and towns to meet standards for new-style areas by 2022 after more than 10 years of implementing the National Target Programme on Building New-Style Rural Areas.

Earlier, the city planned to roll out Programme No.4 on promoting the implementation of the national programme on new-style rural areas and agricultural restructuring for better living standards of people in rural areas for the 2021-2025 period.

As of July, twelve out of 18 districts and towns of Hanoi met standards for new-style rural areas including Dan Phuong, Dong Anh, Thanh Tri, Hoai Duc, Quoc Oai, Gia Lam, Thach That, Thuong Tin, Thanh Oai, Phuc Tho, Soc Son, and Son Tay.

The remaining six localities are mostly districts located far from Hanoi’s metropolitan area, with poor socio-economic infrastructure.

According to the plan, three districts of Chuong My, Me Linh, and Ung Hoa will strive to meet the criteria for new-style rural areas this year.

To qualify as a new-style rural area, a locality must meet 19 criteria on infrastructure, irrigation, electricity, environment, income, education, healthcare, social security, and culture, among these, nine criteria are used to assess the district’s annual performance.

Currently, the Hanoi People’s Committee has asked departments, agencies, people’s committees of districts and towns to assess the draft report on recognition of new rural areas for Chuong My District, according to Nguyen Van Chi, Permanent deputy Chief of the Hanoi Office of New Rural Development Programme Coordination.

Me Linh and Ung Hoa districts are focusing on fulfilling some criteria and expected them to be assessed by the municipal People’s Committee this July.

Director of the Hanoi Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Chu Phu My said, in the roadmap until the end of 2022, the city will continue supporting Ba Vi and My Duc districts to complete the criteria for new-style rural areas this year, where are the capital’s two most backward localities, especially in terms of socio-economic infrastructure.
