HA NOI (VNS) — About 500 young intellectuals will be assigned to work in the most disadvantaged commune People's Committees in rural and mountainous regions nationwide from 2013 to 2020.
The project, already approved by the Prime Minister, aims to improve the quality of commune human resources to promote socio-economic development and contribute to hunger elimination and poverty reduction in disadvantaged localities.
"The country has a total of over 5,000 disadvantaged villages. Therefore, the project will be piloted in 500 of the country's most remote and underprivileged ones," the head of the Ministry of Home Affairs's Youth Affairs department, Vu Dang Minh, told Dai doan ket (Great Unity) Newspaper.
Intellectuals who want to participate in the project must be talented university graduates under the age of 30 with professional skills. They must also lead a virtuous and healthy lifestyle and be willing to work in the areas for five years.
Next year, 300 people will be recruited and assigned to appropriate positions. The remaining 200 will be admitted in 2015. — VNS
