Vũ Vân Anh, Phí Hùng Cường

Abstract


The Northern mountainous region has a relatively large border area and borders China and Laos. In recent years, although this area has been specially invested and developed by the Party and State, in general, it is still poor, facilities are out of date, and people's lives are still difficult. The region's biggest challenge today is low living standards and high poverty; The disparity in income and living standards between regions and population classes tends to increase the gap; The sustainability of the trend of increasing income and improving the lives of the population is not high. This situation reflects the results of positive and limited impacts of the border area economy. Therefore, the community studies the impact of the border area economy on the poverty reduction of ethnic minorities, thereby proposing some solutions to enhance sustainable economic development in this area.
