However, for the last ten years of evaluation, the results of the PAR index continued to maintain an upward trend, the average value of the PAR index in 2021 increased by 10.69% compared to 2012.

The PAR Index 2021 results of provinces and cities are also categorized into three groups.

Group A with an index of 90% or more, which includes Hai Phong (91.8%), Quang Ninh (91.14%) and Da Nang (90.25%).
