On the other hand, the quality of human resources is the key to the sustainable development of the private economy.

Administrative boundaries slowly adjusted causes difficulties to people
Over 200 households in Cu Dhat Village, Cu Dram Commune, Krong Bong District, Dak Lak Province have lived on their own land for more than 23 years. However, they are yet to have the certificate for the use of the land.
The reason for the slowness in administrative adjustment is that Cu Dhat Village has got 100% residents of the H’Mong ethnic minority people who had immigrated from the North. For many years, the People’s Committee of the Commune had sent a lot of proposals to the district and province to make adjustment of the administrative boundaries in this area just to help the local administration to be able to build infrastructure for the locals./.
