Abstract/Citation: I - Objectives
General Objective:
Sustainable poverty reduction is a central issue of the 2011-2020 socio-economic development strategy aimed at improving and incrementally raising the living conditions for the poor, first of all those in mountainous and ethnic minority areas; to make strong and comprehensive improvements in poor areas; and to narrow the gap between urban and rural areas, among regions, ethnic minorities and population groups.
Specific Objectives:
a. The average income per capita of poor households will increase 3.5 times; the rate of poor households will drop 2% per year, particularly 4% in poor districts and communes by poverty standards set for each period;
b. The poor's living conditions will be markedly improved, first of all in health, education, culture, daily-life water and housing; the poor will have more and more convenient access to basic social services;
c. Socio-economic infrastructure facilities in poor districts and communes and extremely disadvantaged villages and hamlets will receive concentrated and synchronous investment according to new countryside standards, first of all essential infrastructure such as transport, electricity and daily-life water supply.
