The program specifically aims to have 50 % of communes across Vietnam meeting new rural standards by 2020, while encouraging each of the centrally run cities and provinces to have at least one district meeting the new standards. It also aims for the average commune to meet fifteen of the new criteria, with no commune meeting fewer than five. The program will complete the construction of essential facilities meeting the demands of production and improved living conditions for rural residents in transportation, electricity, water supply, schools, and communal clinics. It also aims to improve the quality of life of rural residents and create multiple production models fitted with decent jobs for local people, providing incomes at least 1.8 times higher than those of 2015.
