During the period, the province has put into use nearly 1,200 urban, new-style rural area, irrigation, school and health infrastructure facilities. It has completed two bridges spanning the Hong (Red) River and nearly 300km of provincial, national and urban roads. It has also concreted nearly 1,800km of rural roads, helping 85 percent of all hamlets and villages have concrete roads. The local urbanisation rate has reached 21 percent so far.

Some key projects already operational have proved effective, becoming momentum for local socio-economic development such as Tuan Quan Bridge, Bac Lam Bridge that links National Highway 37 with Noi Bai-Lao Cai Expressway, and the road connecting Intersection IC12 of Noi Bai-Lao Cai Expressway with Viet Hong commune of Tran Yen district.

These are projects of economic, political and social significance, especially arterial transport infrastructure facilities that boost connectivity among areas within the province, and between Yen Bai and other provinces in the northern midland and mountainous region, the Red River Delta and Hanoi capital, thereby contributing to local development and giving a facelift to urban and rural areas in Yen Bai.

Basing on these achievements, for the years to come, Yen Bai is set to continue prioritising the development of synchronous socio-economic infrastructure, with the focus on transport, information, telecoms, irrigation, urban and industrial park infrastructure, as well as connectivity between rural and urban areas, among industry, services and agriculture, and between the province and nearby localities, so as to meet development demand./.
