(HBO) – In early days of the spring, we visited Bac Phong commune in Cao Phong district and witnessed its new look of big concrete roads, standard cultural facilities, and nice houses.

A high consensus between the residents and local authorities is a key factor that has changed the lives of Bac Phong people. The authorities have linked the practice of democracy with new-style rural building, under which all guidelines, plans, and implementation of construction works are discussed publicly to collect people’s feedback. These, together with the publicity and transparency in using people’s donations, have consolidated their trust in the local Party organisation and administration.

As a result, in the 2017 – 2021 period, 86 local households donated nearly 5,000m2 of land for the building of key projects, mostly rural roads. Along with that, people developed a good sense of protecting the environment in their residences and public places.

Bac Phong’s infrastructure has seen significant changes, with 100 percent of inter-village roads asphalted, 76 percent of canals upgraded, and 100 percent of households using electricity regularly and safely. The rate of the locals participating in the health insurance network neared 90 percent, the average per capita income was 40 million VND (1,752 USD) a year, while the poverty rate decreased significantly from 34.4 percent in 2011 to 2.7 percent in 2021.

Khuong Xuan Lich, Chairman of the Bac Phong People’s Committee, affirmed the practice of democracy has created consensus in the community and laid the foundation for the success of the commune today.

He highlighted the need for further efforts toward fulfilling advanced criteria in building new-style rural areas. The work can be done via good communications, active participation of locals, and a specific plan, the official noted./.
