Regarding the National Target Program on New Rural Development (NTM), the province has achieved significant progress, with 8 out of 9 district-level units meeting the standard and completing the task of building new rural areas. Additionally, 85 out of 85 communes meet the standard of new rural areas, while 38 communes have reached the advanced level. As for the cultural hamlet and new rural hamlet standards, 636 out of 640 hamlets have met the requirements, reaching an impressive rate of 99.38%.

In terms of the NTP on sustainable poverty reduction, according to the multi-dimensional poverty line, the province managed to reduce 4,803 households, amounting to a 1.68% reduction in the poverty rate compared to the previous year. Furthermore, 6,310 near-poor households have also seen a reduction of 2.20% during the same period.

Regarding the implementation of the NTP on socio-economic development in ethnic minority and mountainous areas, the province managed to reduce 1.31% of poor households (equivalent to a reduction of 2,218 households) that had not met the target assigned by the Prime Minister in Decision No. 653/QD-TTg dated May 28, 2022. However, two communes (Nghia Xuyen and Ham Giang, Tra Cu district) and two hamlets (OkaDa hamlet, Phuoc Hao commune, Chau Thanh district and Tra Cu C hamlet, Kim Son commune, Tra Cu district) successfully moved out of the extremely difficult areas, achieving 100% of the plan for 2022.

At the working session, members of the Oversight Delegation and provincial leaders discussed several issues, including the low disbursement rate, delays in issuing some documents, and challenges related to integrating capital sources for NTP implementation. Additionally, they addressed training for program staff, the rate of skilled workers, and the need for closer coordination between departments and sectors. The meeting concluded with a focus on solutions to remove obstacles and accelerate the implementation of programs and projects under the three NTPs in the province.
