Transport infrastructure across the six communes in the city is now relatively conducive and has met local demand.

All local roads have been paved so far, with more than 52.23km of roads linking hamlets and traversing fields concreted between 2017 and 2020.

The irrigation system across Yen Bai city has also been improved. There are now eight pumping stations, 26 reservoirs and irrigation dams, and 81.05km of canals, 77.2km of which has been concreted, thereby ensuring water supply for rice and crop farming.

The communes reinforced 16.42km of canals during 2017 - 2020, helping to improve the local irrigation system’s quality.

Besides, many projects have been carried out to upgrade rural power networks. As a result, 100 percent of households in the six communes have accessed electricity, and all have gained safe power use.

To develop agriculture towards cash crop production and higher quality, Yen Bai city has assisted local farmers in applying scientific and technological advances. Hi-tech agriculture is currently its target which many economic experts assess as a stable and sustainable development direction.

To promote technological application to agriculture, municipal authorities have supported three vegetable production cooperatives to be certified as eligible for food production. They have also moved to develop a vegetable production chain applying good agricultural practices on 8.21ha of land.

Yen Bai city has also successfully applied biotechnology to animal husbandry as seen through livestock cross-breeding and the use of artificial insemination technology to improve pig and cow varieties.

These are new orientations expected to greatly help improve living standards in the city.
