Paying attention to grass roots cultural life
 
The appearance of Khanh Son District has changed much from urban to rural areas with many solid houses replacing thatched cottages. Commodity-producing agriculture based on law of the markets, is gradually being formed in the locality where more than 70% of the population is Raglai ethnic people. Along with development, the traditional cultural values of local people have still been preserved. “In recent years, the district has gradually built a new cultural lifestyle in each family and village. Thanks to that, negative things in the spiritual life of local people have been limited,” said by Bui Van Vinh, head of Khanh Son District’s Culture and Information Bureau.
