The Vietnamese Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, has accepted the recommendations of the Ministry of Interior, as set-out in the "Official Letter 5039 / BNV-TCCB 4002", in response to the earlier proposal by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs of the government of Vietnam of 2 proposed options for the annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2017.

A month ago (27-Sep-2016), Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs had denied social media rumours that the dates and extent of the 2017 Tet (Vietnamese New Year) non-working public holidays of Vietnam had already been decided and announced, and issued a communiqué indicating that the dates and extent of the 2017 Tet (Vietnamese New Year) non-working public holidays of Vietnam would be announced in November 2016.

In the meantime (19-Oct-2016), the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs of the government of Vietnam issued a draft containing its proposed annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Vietnam for the upcoming calendar year 2017, with 2 different options being drafted for the annual Tet lunar new year of Vietnam.

Then, earlier this month (02-Nov-2016), the Vietnamese Ministry of Interior issued the "Official Letter 5039 / BNV-TCCB 4002" of the Vietnamese Ministry of Interior, in which it was the 7-day Tet lunar new year public holidays option which was to be submitted to the Prime Minister for consideration.

As per the revised new Labour Code (22-Mar-2010 and 16-Nov-2009), adopted at the third session of the 13th National Assembly (21-Jun-2012), and which took effect on May 1st, 2013, the annual Tet Vietnamese non-working public holidays are extended from 4 to 5 days and, contrary to last year (15-Oct-2015) but in line with previous years (12-Nov-2014 and 05-Dec-2013), the aforementioned MOLISA draft list of Vietnamese public holidays for 2017, suggests a swap weekend days for additional public holidays in Vietnam during the Tet 2017 Vietnamese public holidays which are running from January 27-31, 2017, before any adjustments are made.
