The city will offer gifts to 5,000 families.

Trade unions at all levels will launch online and in-person subsidised markets for workers and visit and offer Tet gifts for those who can’t return home for Tet.

The trade unions have also been asked to persuade employers to arrange coaches or give subsidised tickets to disadvantaged employees.

According to Deputy Chairman of the Labour Federation of HCM City Tran Doan Trung, providing free transport to workers in difficult circumstances for Tet has become an annual tradition of many companies in Ho Chi Minh City over the past year.
