Thank you to everyone for all of your insights. I agree very much with the comments highlighting the importance of both education and infrastructure for addressing poverty in general and ethnic minority poverty in particular.
Pham Gia Binh raises an interesting point about the incentives that government programs can create for local leaders. I do not have an easy answer to this. But I think it helps emphasize the importance of evaluation of the impact of programs. If a program is spending lots of money without any effect on poverty, the government should consider trying another approach.
