JICA helps rural development in Yen Bai

A working delegation of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on February 25 had a working session with leaders of the northern mountainous province of Yen Bai in preparation for a JICA-funded project to develop rural areas in the locality. 

According to the head of JICA’s investigation team Takuya Nakagawa, in October and November 2015, the agency sent investigation delegations to collect data on improving agricultural productivity in the six northern mountainous provinces of Dien Bien, Son La, Lai Chau, Ha Giang, Lao Cai and Yen Bai. 

The estimated investment is from VND300-350 billion (US$13.4-15.7 million) for each locality. 



In Yen Bai, the working delegation will conduct surveys and collect data on sub-projects, and hold working sessions with several local departments from February 26 to March 12. 
Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Chien Thang thanked JICA for their cooperation with and support for Yen Bai province. 

JICA-funded programmes and projects have previously produced positive results, facilitating agricultural production for local farmers. 

The locality wishes to continue receiving support from the agency to boost its agricultural and rural development and improve locals’ livelihoods, thus contributing to its socio-economic development.
