Started in April 2011, the project aims to attract young well-trained intellectuals to help boost socio-economic development in poorest districts.

The project management board said it has received over 1,700 applications, of which 580 young intellectuals have been selected.

Candidates are mainly university graduates in the fields of agriculture and forestry, construction, natural resources, land management, economics and information technology

Some post-graduates who are studying in Australia, New Zealand and the US called the Ministry of Home Affairs asking whether they can participate in the selection.

Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Nguyen Tien Dinh confirmed that the project doesn’t discriminate between in-service universities and normal universities, and it gives priority to those who can speak the languages of the major ethnic minorities in the areas where they serve.

Addressing the conference, PM Dung praised efforts made by the Ministry of Home Affairs and relevant localities in implementing the project.

The realization of the project has contributed to training and improving the quality of cadres at grass-roots levels, the Government chief noted.

He also pointed out shortcomings including the limited ethnic language capacity, experiences as well as activeness in putting forth new ideas.

PM Dung stressed the need to organize training courses for selected candidates to improve their State management knowledge and administration skills while creating favorable conditions for them to join hands in socio-economic development.

The young vice chairs were called on to overcome difficulties and uphold their sense of responsibility to fulfill their assigned tasks in most disadvantaged communes.

Poverty reduction is one of the Government’s key priorities. In 2008, the Government issued Resolution 30a/2008/NQ-CP dated on December 27, 2008 to support fast and sustainable development in 62 poorest districts.
