Poverty alleviation efforts by the central province of Quang Binh have lifted approximately 10,000 households (3.5-4 percent) out of poverty annually.

The achievement can be attributed to the development of specific programmes for provincial departments and grassroots agencies to jointly implement based on surveys of poor households and their resulting effective solution recommendations.

The province has also provided land, agriculture development, and production stimulation assistance to poor households.

Rural infrastructure for remote mountainous or disadvantaged areas has been improved.

Quang Binh currently has around 18,000 poor households, 7.93 percent of the province’s entire population, and 41,500 nearly-poor households, accounting for 18.24 percent.-VNA
