The Vietnam General Confederation of Labor calls on the government of Vietnam to add 3 annual non-working public holidays to the Vietnamese labour code and work calendar, either by increasing the annual Independence Day public holidays to run from September 2 to 5, or by declaring January 1-3 as public holidays annually.

Meanwhile, concerning the list of 2020 public holidays in Vietnam, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) has most recently proposed that there be no swapping of public holidays in 2020 around the Tet Vietnamese New Year annual public holidays of Vietnam (2019-09-14) and generally issued negative comments as to the proposal by the Vietnam General Confederation of Labor.
