In 2021-2025, Yen Bai province will strive to have two more districts (Van Yen and Yen Binh) to meet new rural development standards to bring the total certified districts to five. Tran Yen district will fulfill advanced new rural development standards.

Many of the new rural development standards have been elevated, especially multidimensional poverty and health criteria. Despite existing difficulties and challenges, the entire political system of the province is focusing on many solutions to complete new rural development goals in 2021 - 2025.

Accordingly, the Yen Bai Provincial People’s Committee launched a plan for implementation of the “Yen Bai join forces to build new rural areas'' movement in the 2021-2025 period, with a particular focus on scientific and technological research and application, innovations, policies and solutions to successfully carry out the new rural development program in each industry and locality. The province will strongly restructure the rural economy by increasing the share of non-agricultural sectors, developing agriculture and forestry along the value chain and building sustainable countryside. By 2025, income per capita in rural areas will be over VND50 million a year.

The province will continue to consolidate, improve the quality, expand the scale and market for export-oriented OCOP products; reduce the poverty rate; and raise the share of trained workers to over 70% by 2025.  The well-being index in 2025 will rise by 15% compared to 2020. Certified new rural communes and districts will strive to maintain their status and achieve advanced standards as well.

The province will encourage enterprises to invest in agriculture and sign production cooperation contracts with farmers and cooperatives, and couple product processing and consumption to speed up the formation of concentrated commodity production areas, develop rural production facilities, and accelerate economic and labor restructuring in rural areas.
