MR1’s defense-economic mission supporting locals with their household production

Accordingly, the region directed Defense-Economic Missions 338 and 799 to build three defense-economic zones in Cao Bang and Lang Son provinces.

After five years of implementation, the defense-economic missions built 15 border villages, helped 706 local households stabilize their livelihood, repaired 81.55km of rural roads, constructed 34 irrigation works, and so on.

In addition, the local medical stations offered health check-ups to thousands of ethnic minority people, provided first aid to nearly 7,000 people, and food, worth over VND 3 billion, to patients under treatment at the medical stations of the defense-economic zones.
