Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung has asked for prompt inspection of the dumping of waste by the Hung Hiep Formosa Ha Tinh Steel Limited Company.

The request was made following recent news stories which said that the company was found burying a huge amount of waste at a farm run by the director of an environmental company in Ky Anh town of central Ha Tinh province.

Dung urged the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to coordinate with the provincial People’s Committee to check the information.

If it is true, measures should be taken to strictly address the case following legal regulations.

The outcomes of the inspection must be reported to the Prime Minister, he added.-VNA
