A deputy representing Bac Lieu province, Lai Xuan Mon, comments: “The government needs to review new rural area criteria with both hard and soft standards. This will promote nationwide application and encourage local innovation.”

Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Nguyen Xuan Cuong said the new criteria in new rural development include sustainable development indicators by the United Nations: “New rural area development and agricultural restructuring should be linked to economic restructuring.
