The Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee has confirmed the date of April 4, 2009, for the upcoming Hung Kings Anniversary public holiday, as well as the details of a day in lieu public holiday on Monday, April 6, 2009.

Government workers (officials, armed forces, administrative and party officers) who normally have to work on Saturdays will take their public holiday on Saturday, April 4, and thus will not get Monday off.

Other government workers, and private organizations and businesses, will take their public holiday on Monday, April 6, 2009.

The April (usually) Hung Kings Anniversary public holiday was added to the list of official Vietnamese public holidays in March 2007 (2007-03-24), and after some hesitation, it was made a public holiday effective immediately in 2007 (2007-03-29).
