(HBO) – Hoa Binh province has carried out a slew of measures to help villages and communes build culture houses and appropriate cultural institutions so as to improve spiritual lives of local people. The move is part of the province’s effort to realise the national target programme on building new style rural areas.


The cultural house in An Nghia commune, Lac Son district has been built based on local cultural identity.

After ten years implementing the new-style rural area building programme, the province has been paid due attention to developing culture and sport facilities. To date, cultural houses have been built in 1,443 out of 1,482 villages. By the end of this year, 97 out of 191 communes are expected to fulfil the programme’s cultural facility criteria.

The campaign "All people stay united to build cultural life” has been implemented in Hoa Binh city and all districts. By the end of 2018, the province had 174,132 out of 212,506 households bestowed with "cultural family” title, 1,392 out of 1,999 villages receiving "cultural village” title. This year, 184 out of 191 communes are expected to achieve the programme’s culture criteria, increasing 115 communes as compared to 2010.

According to Director of the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Bui Thi Niem, culture is an important factor in the new style rural area building programme. The programme aims better local livelihoods, improve transport infrastructure, build green and clean landscape, and preserve traditional culture.

In the coming time, the local cultural sector will continue working to improve quality of culture and cultural facility criteria, integrate the new-style rural area building programme into the "All people stay united to build cultural life” movement.

Investment will be made to build institutions, as well as sport and cultural facilities, she said, adding the sector will work closely with the steering board of the new-style rural area building programme to inspect and supervise the implementation of culture criteria./.
