To realise this target, the whole commune has mobilised available resources to implement many practical activities, such as upgrading the traffic system, renovating the landscape, and supporting livestock.

The Dien Bien provincial Fatherland Front Committee in coordination with relevant agencies and the authorities of Sa Tong Commune held a ceremony to commence the construction of a 410-million-VND elementary boarding school for ethnic students in Sa Tong commune, Muong Cha district.
