In the first 6 months of 2019, despite numerous difficultiesdue to prolonged drought, epidemics on some crops and livestock continued torecur, affecting production and people’s lives in the area, but Phu Yenprovince’s socio-econo situation is basically either stable or developed.
The results of the implementation of major socio-econotargets surpass 50% of the 2019 plan and increased significantly over the sameperiod, in which the growth rate of total products (GRDP) reached 9.2%. Budgetrevenue in the province reached VND 3,330 billion, equalling 61% of theprovincial estimate. New rural construction in Phu Yen has many positiveresults when more than 50% of communes have met new rural standards, Tay Hoadistrict has reached new rural standards and Phu Hoa district is carrying outprocedures for approval.
