At the conference on the Winter-Spring crop in Ninh Binh in October, 1959, the President gave directions, not only for the crop that year, but also for various aspects for the long term forthe Party organisation, military and people of Ninh Binh.

Following his instructions, the authorities and people of Ninh Binh have united in their efforts to overcome difficulties, thus joining people nationwide in the resistance war for national liberation and re-unification.

After the national re-unification, the province has made remarkable development, particularly after the re-establishment of Ninh Binh as a province in 1992.

From the beginning of 2019, various programmes and emulation campaigns were launched by Ninh Binh agencies, organisations and have received warm response from cadres, military units and the local people.
