Phu Tho (VNA) - The northern province of Phu Tho plans to mobilise 2 trillion VND (85.2 million USD) to build new-style rural areas this year.

It aims to have at least ten new rural communes by year’s-end, raising the total to 120.

The province is therefore speeding up production in association with agricultural restructuring and focusing on developing organic farm produce.

Local authorities will encourage people to contribute funds and effort to develop transport infrastructure, irrigation networks, and cultural works in rural areas.

The province will also pay greater attention to building production and consumption chains and promoting key products under the “One Commune, One Product” (OCOP) programme./.
