The order was made at a meeting between the Party Chief, leaders of related agencies and the Hau River Industry Park management board and Lee&Man plant managers on September 13.
Local people residing near the Lee & Man paper making complex along the Mai Dam River in Hau Giang Province have complained last week that their lives had been impacted by the noise and smell from the plant.
Mr. Chanh met residents living near the paper mill to listen to their opinion.
General Director of the paper mill Chung Wai Fu said at the meeting that low quality recycled paper residues were giving off damp stench. After receiving resident's complaints, the plant has treated the residues to eliminate the foul smell.
Before, in March, the paper mill has given off the stench and noise when it operated.
