Typically, in Thuong village, during 2018-2019, soliders, militia and people expanded more than 700m of intra-field roads.
Along with building roads, soldiers also opened and dredged nearly 10km of canals and devoted hundreds of workdays to help policy beneficiary families clean up hill gardens and renovate martyrs cemeteries.
