The Ho Chi Minh City government has rejected Ha Tien 1 Cement JS's  plans to relocate its Thu Duc cement grinding plant to District 9 and scale up the capacity of its Phu Huu grinding unit.

A document sent to Ho Chi Minh City Department of Natural Resources and Environment and related agencies last week, Ho Chi Minh City Vice Chairman Tat Thanh Cang confirmed the decision.

The Thu Duc cement grinding plant is located by Ha Noi Highway in Truong Tho Commune in Thu Duc District. The facilities is one of the many forced to move out of the city due to environmental pollution concerns.

The municipal departments of planning-investment and natural resources-environment wrote to the city government in May and September seeking approval for Ha Tien 1 Cement Joint Stock Company to relocate the facility to Phu Huu.

However, the city government rejected the proposals and urged the company to find a new location for the Thu Duc grinding plant at end-2016 in line with master zoning plans for the construction sector in the southeastern and Mekong Delta regions.

The company has pledged to find a new site for the Thu Duc grinding plant and complete the relocation by the end of 2016. (Source: VENEWS)
