(HBO) – The People’s Committee of Hoa Binh province has recently held a ceremony to announce Luong Son district earning the title of new-style rural area, and its commune-level town of Luong Son and neighbouring areas meeting the fourth-tier city standards and receiving a third-class Labour Order.


The event was attended by member of the Party Central Committee and Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung, officials of ministries and central sectors, and provincial and district leaders.

Member of the Party Central Committee and Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung hands over the Prime Minister’s decision to recognise Luong Son as a new-style rural area.

Addressing the event, Vice Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Bui Van Khanh, who is also head of the Hoa Binh steering committee for the implementation of national target programmes, stressed that Luong Son has encouraged the public in building new-style countryside in a sound and creative manner. As a result, after 10 years of new-style countryside building efforts, the district had all the 19 communes named new-style rural areas as of September 2019.

The district’s communes have gained a considerable facelift, rural residents’ living standards have been improved with annual per capita income of 38 million VND (over 1,600 USD), and the household poverty rate has dropped to 2.92 percent. Luong Son no longer has debts in basic construction in building new-style rural areas.

The district’s success provides experience for Hoa Binh province to continue directing new-style countryside building in the time ahead.

To meet development demand in Luong Son town and the neighbouring areas and create development momentum for the district, on November 20, 2019, the Ministry of Construction recognised that Luong Son town and the neighbouring areas meet the fourth-tier city standards. They cover six of the 11 administrative units of the district, namely Luong Son town and the five communes of Lam Son, Tan Vinh, Cu Yen, Nhuan Trach and Hoa Son.

This is considered a prerequisite for Luong Son district to seize chances for fast and comprehensive development.

To recognise this district’s achievements in building new-style countryside, on July 14, 2020, the PM decided to name Luong Son a new-style rural area in 2019, one year ahead of schedule. Besides, Luong Son town and the neighbouring area were confirmed to have met the fourth-tier city standards and granted with a third-class Labour Order.

This is a source of pride for Luong Son district in particular and Hoa Binh province in general after 10 years of continuous efforts.

At the ceremony, on behalf of Party and State leaders and the central steering committee for the implementation of national target programmes, Deputy PM Trinh Dinh Dung congratulated Luong Son district and applauded its achievements in building new-style rural areas and meeting fourth-tier city standards over the past years.

He asked Hoa Binh province to uphold its obtained outcomes and encourage people of all social strata to join hands in building new-style rural areas and contributing to the development of the district and the province.

The Deputy PM also requested Luong Son to tap into the potential and advantages of a district that serves as the eastern gateway of Hoa Binh and a link between the province and Hanoi, as well as between the Red River Delta and the northern mountainous region./.
