From the funding, 54 transport infrastructure facilities and 13 cultural houses worth close to 50 billion VND have been built.

Nguyen Viet Giang, head of the district’s office for ethnic affairs, said Luc Yen is home to 22 ethnic groups living across 15 out of its 24 communes. They have benefited from the State’s investment in electricity, road, and agricultural production projects.

Projects supporting the local production development have been implemented at a cost of some 5 billion VND, helping more than 5,000 households escape from poverty a year.

Such assistance has resulted in the formation of areas of citrus fruit, cinnamon, and peanut, and high-quality rice plantations spanning more than 870 ha, 4,000 ha, 1,000 ha, and 500 ha respectively.

The district also prioritised promoting the connection between production and consumption; building strong collective brands for local oranges, ducks, and chickens; and applying the VietGap standard for safe production.

In 2017, the district had 6,581 poor households, accounting for 23.48 percent of its total households. The figures decreased to 1,712 and 5.9 percent in 2020, respectively. Phan Thanh, Minh Chuan, Lam Thuong and Khanh Thien communes were among those recording quick reduction of poverty rate.
