Vietnam province pulls plug on defense-sensitive Chinese-invested resort project

The administration of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue has decided to stop implementing a Chinese-developed resort project at a location deemed sensitive to national defense, the provincial chairman confirmed Wednesday.

Thua Thien-Hue has come under criticism after it licensed World Shine Hong Kong Co. Ltd., whose representatives are Chinese businesspeople, to develop the World Shine – Hue international resort on Cua Khem Cape, where Hai Van Mountain meets the East Vietnam Sea.
The cape is also a border area between the province and the central hub of Da Nang.
