According to the report, the enterprise had piloted farming clams in a 15,000sq.m area around Hòn Hàng Island as well as planting 200 coconut trees and breeding chickens without the permission of the local authorities.
A report of the Thanh Niên (Young People) newspaper said a representative of Bích Khải Enterprise admitted that they had implemented the pilot project in cooperation with Hải Đăng Company, which was responsible for seeking permission. — VNS
