This achievement has had a positive impact on mass movements, especially the "All people unite to build the cultural life” movement which has been associated with the new-style rural area building programme, helping to improve the material and spiritual lives of local residents as well as ensuring social security and order.

Nearly 99% of agencies, units, enterprises and schools achieved the "Cultural agency, unit and enterprise" title. The "All people take exercise following the example of great Uncle Ho" movement was also promoted at the same time.

The number of people playing sports or joining in physical exercise regularly has reached over 45,000 people and 70 sports clubs have been established.

People have observed the civilised lifestyle at weddings, funerals and festivals. The district has restored nine traditional festivals, meeting the people's aspirations.
