In the past five years, the city has invested nearly 3.37 trillion VND (132.45 million USD) in carrying out over 200 works and projects to serve ethnic minorities. Now it has three communes achieving advanced new-style rural standards and 37 out of 45 schools meeting national standards. It leads the province in terms of education universalisation criteria.

Attention has been paid to social security policies for ethnic minorities. The Standing Board of the city Party Committee has assigned officials and Party members to help all poor households.

As many as 158 houses have been built and repaired for poor households, at a total cost of 5.1 billion VND. In 2023, the city completed the elimination of makeshift houses. Currently it has only 80 poor households, accounting for 0.29%.
