HCMC – The Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs has proposed a five-day holiday for the upcoming Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labor Day (May 1).

The proposal suggests swapping the normal working day on Monday (April 29) with compensatory days during the upcoming holiday, allowing workers to enjoy an uninterrupted five-day break. The ministry is currently seeking feedback from relevant agencies on this proposal.

Explaining the rationale behind the proposal, the ministry pointed out that Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labor Day (May 1) fall on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. Thus, granting Monday (April 29) off would enable employees to have a five-day holiday from April 27 to May 1.

This initiative aims to stimulate consumption and travel activities, thereby boosting economic growth, all while ensuring the requisite working duration for officers and employees.

Upon receiving feedback on the proposed five-day holiday, the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs will present it to the prime minister for consideration and approval.
