Vietnamese construction company ignores cease-and-desist on hotel project

A private construction company began work on three hotel projects in central and southern Vietnam without the necessary licenses. 

According to Thanh Nien News, Dien Bien Construction Company No. 1 began work on the Muong Thanh Cua Lo Hotel project in August. "It wasn't until May of this year the theta provincial Department of Construction discovered that the company had yet to apply for a construction license from the provincial authorities," the article says.

A stop-work order has been issued, but the company has reportedly ignored the order. Cua Lo Town authorities inspected the site on many occasions and construction seems to be continuing.
