Solar new year holiday to extend four days

Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee has announced that the coming solar new year holiday will extend four days to organizations and offices working 40 hours or five days a week.

Officials, civil servants, armed forces and workers in government agencies and businesses will have to work on Saturday, December 27 to have a Friday off on January 2.

The holiday thus will extend four consecutive days from January 1 to 4.

Those organizations and businesses who still work at the weekend will arrange the holiday schedule themselves to suit their business nature.

Government agencies, schools, hospitals, armed forces and households will fly the national flag on January 1. Authorized agencies must arrange officials and staff on duty in the holiday to ensure public security.
