Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung on July 29 signed Decision 1138/QD-TTg recognizing Binh Giang district to meet new-style rural standard in 2019.
In the past five years, communes in Binh Giang spent over VND1,560 billion on new-style rural building. In which, VND290 billion came from Central, provincial, and district budgets; nearly VND670 billion from commune budgets; and more than VND600 billion from people's donations.
By 2019, all communes in the district had satisfied new-style rural standard.
This result surpasses the target set at the 27th district Party Congress that by 2020, 75 – 80% of communes will have met new-style rural standard.
