With many creative approaches, Thanh Hoa province has six districts, 367 communes and 937 villages certified to meet new countryside standards, 12 exemplary new countryside villages after nearly 10 years of implementation, according to a report at the conference on development of new model rural villages in 2020.
This is the result of engaging the whole political system. Some branches and unions at the provincial level promoted their advantages and responsibilities in a creative and effective way and made an important contribution to the new rural development program and the new model new countryside program in the province. All districts and communes have policies to support and encourage villages to adopt exemplary and advanced new rural development programs. Up to now, the infrastructure system, built according to new rural development standards, has been gradually improved to meet prescribed standards. People enthusiastically responded and actively renovated mixed gardens, built model gardens, focused on building a civilized and polite lifestyle in daily life and communication. Compared to the time of launching the programs, the income per capita increased significantly and the poverty rate sank significantly.
Building new model countryside villages created new features for residential areas but still retained traditional rural customs. Public awareness of economic development and commodity production has been heightened. Many economic development models in villages have been aligned with the OCOP Program.
According to the report, Thanh Hoa is striving to have two communes and 34 villages to meet new model countryside standards.
