The Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids, and Social Affairs, has released a second draft of the currently being discussed revised version of the Vietnamese Labour code which regulates the list of, and dates of, non-working public holidays in Vietnam.

Current versions of the second draft of the Vietnamese Labour code include the enshrining of the additional annual non-working public holiday for the Hung Kings (Commemorative Celebration of Vietnam's Forefather - King Hung: one day - the 10th March of the Lunar year), voted a couple of years ago (2007-03-29 and 2007-03-24).

Interestingly, the current draft also includes a provision that entitles foreigners working in Vietnam to "one traditional public holiday and one National Day of
his/her country, both fully paid"
