The Director of Work Safety at the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Ha Tat Thang, has 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.

Director Thang went on to say that the dates and extent of the 2017 Tet (Vietnamese New Year) non-working public holidays of Vietnam will be announced in November 2016.

As per the revised new Labour Code (2010-03-22 and 2009-11-16), adopted at the third session of the 13th National Assembly (2012-06-21), and which took effect on May 1st, 2013, the annual Tet Vietnamese non-working public holidays were extended from 4 to 5 days and, contrary to last year (2015-10-15) but in line with previous years (2014-11-12 and 2013-12-05), there may be a need to 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.
