Thereby, they awarded nearly 1,000 houses and are continuing to receive fund to deploy construction for another 500 houses in the first months of 2020.

In addition, the province has mobilized the program for donating cow breeds, worth more than 54 billion VND, bought and directly handed over more than 4,000 cows to the poor farmers. This is a very meaningful program for the remote and border areas in implementing the policy of sustainable poverty reduction.
