Economy

Ha Giang province is a highly mountainous region. Much of the province is too mountainous for agriculture, leaving much of the land covered by forests. Ha Giang's central plateau is good for growing plums, peaches, and persimmons, which the province exports. Tea is also grown.

Ha Giang is one of the poorest provinces of Vietnam. Traditionally, the vast majority of its economic activity revolved around agriculture and forestry, but in recent years, there have been attempts to establish a manufacturing industry. Infrastructure in Ha Giang has seen improvement, but remains poor - roads, schools, and health services are less developed than in many other parts of Vietnam.
