HCMC – The Ministry of Home Affairs has thrown its support behind a five-day break proposal for Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labor Day (May 1), saying the proposal should go before the prime minister.

The Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs earlier proposed an uninterrupted five-day break during the upcoming national holiday.

The Ministry of Home Affairs agreed to swap the normal working day on Monday (April 29) with a compensatory day for the upcoming holiday.

This year, Vietnam’s Reunification Day on April 30 and International Labor Day on May 1 fall on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Thus, allowing for a day off on Monday (April 29) would lead to a five-day holiday lasting straight from April 27 to May 1.

The Ministry of Home Affairs urged the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs to finalize necessary documents and submit them to the prime minister for consideration.

According to the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs, the proposal would stimulate tourism demand and thus boost economic growth. Importantly, this change would not disrupt the work schedules of officials, civil servants, employees, and workers.

Currently, the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs is gathering feedback from 15 ministries and agencies, with the aim of concluding them by April 8 to finalize the documents for submission to the PM.
