(HBO) - Da Bac is the only poor district of Hoa Binh province, with all of its 17 communes inhabited by ethnic minority people.

Ethnic minority groups in Da Bac district receive support to escape from poverty. 

According to Dinh Thi Nam, head of the district’s Bureau for Ethnic Affairs, ethnic minorities make up about 90% of the local population, of whom Tay people account for nearly 42%, Muong over 33% and others.

The district counts 13 communes and seven villages classified as extremely disadvantaged.

All-level Party Committees, authorities and agencies in Da Bac have paid attention to ethnic affairs, considering them a strategic issue for both short and long terms.

The Party, the State and Hoa Binh province have rolled out various programmes, projects and policies on ethnic affairs as well as the extremely disadvantaged areas, focusing on infrastructure construction and livelihood assistance.

However, due to the local socio-economic situation, Da Bac has yet to completely escape from poverty.

Although the rate of the poor households in the locality has dropped by 5.8%, poverty still remains a major challenge to Da Bac as the number of poor households among the ethnic minority groups makes up more than 90% of the total.

Statistics show that, the district has 695 households in need of housing support and 232 others face land issues. Up to 1,101 poor households in extremely disadvantaged areas lack land or have no land for production.

Given this, Da Bac district has viewed the implementation of the national target programme on socio-economic development in mountainous and ethnic minority-inhabited areas for 2021-2025 a momentum for poverty reduction.

The district Party Committee and People’s Committee have requested building a project on the implementation of the national target programme on the socio-economic development in disadvantaged areas as well as priorities in the work.

Da Bac is striving to double per capita income by 2025 from that in 2020, and cut the number of poor ethnic minority households by 2.5-3%, with extremely disadvantaged communes to drop from 4-4.5% and half of the communes to be removed from the list. /.
