Nguyen Quang Hung, deputy director of Ha Giang Department of Construction, said on October 9 that they had had a meeting with related agencies and reported to Ha Giang People's Committee.

They suggested keeping a small part of the building as a tourist stop and remove the rest of the building. Trees would be planted on the empty land. Meo Vac District authorities were asked to carry out the plan and complete everything by November 15.

The investors must complete legal procedures for the remaining part within 60 days. The provincial authorities were suggested consulting with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism before issuing final decisions.

"We have proposed to only keep the part near the road as a pit stop as recommended by UNESCO experts," Hung said.

According to the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the building is built outside of the protected area.
