Vietnamese Prime Minister, Nguyen Xuan HookTet, has approved the plan proposed by Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), for the official list of Vietnamese public holiday in the calendar year 2020, whereby there would be 7 consecutive days of public holidays in Vietnam for the Lunar New Year (Tet).
The aforementioned decision by Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan HookTet, is in line with last month's (2019-09-14 and 2019-08-28) proposal by Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) that there be no swapping of public holidays in 2020 around the Tet Vietnamese New Year annual public holidays of Vietnam.
The 2 proposed MOLISA options were covered in the National Assembly session, earlier this month, after a first review by the Standing Committee of the National Assembly, on September 20.
