The director of Vietnam's Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) has submitted to the Prime Minister two plans for the Lunar New Year public holidays of Vietnam in 2021.
The aforementioned draft is in line with the recent (2019-07-22, 2018-04-13, 2017-09-29, 2016-10-19) by MOLISA), whereby 2 options are proposed and debated at length until an inter departmental consensus is reached.
As usual, MOLISA makes a recommendation as to which of the 2 options should be chosen, and in this case "the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs proposed to choose option 1 to rest 2 days before Tet, 3 days after Tet. Because this plan is both in compliance with the legal regulations, and harmonious and appropriate because the number of days off before Tet is 2 days not too short, the number of days off after Tet includes 3 days of Tet and 2 days of compensation ( Saturday - Sunday) is appropriate".
