Vietnam's Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Dao Ngoc Dung, has announced that, following its rejection by many members of the National Assembly, he was withdrawing his earlier draft proposal to reduce the 2020 Tet Nguyên đán lunar new year of Vietnam public holidays, and declare July 27 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Vietnam.

Last month (2019-05-03), we had reported that Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) had submitted, to the Vietnamese government, a draft proposal to reduce the 2020 Tet Nguyên đán lunar new year of Vietnam public holidays, and declare July 27 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Vietnam, instead.

Today's volte-face, is one of the exceedingly rare occasions on which a proposal by Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA), is turned down, although it is true that, in general, their proposals always come with 2 or more options to choose from (2018-07-12, 2018-06-21, 2018-05-28, 2018-04-13, 2017-12-15, 2017-12-09, 2017-11-24, 2017-10-20, 2017-09-29, 2016-11-21, 2016-11-02, 2016-10-19).
