Speaking of views on the operation of the apartments after completion, a representative of a real estate developer in HCMC said it was time for residents to pay attention to the operation of the building.

If the residents “give up” the right to supervise the management of small things in the apartment, such as the environment, fire and fire … who will ensure no fire but the equipment On-site fire fighting becomes ineffective as in the case of Carina Plaza.

As a result, the tightening of censorship of completed projects is necessary and should be implemented in the present time when a series of fire incident occurred in the high-end  apartment buildings.
