Over 4,300 low-income workers in industrial zones in Hanoi such as Thang Long, Quang Minh and Noi Bai on February 15 set out on their trips home for the traditional New Year on buses provided free of charge by the municipal authorities.

This is the second year Hanoi has arranged free of charge transportation for disadvantaged workers to help them go home with families to enjoy the year’s most important festival.

Another 17 coaches are planned to depart from seven locations in the city on February 16 to bring more workers home in time for Tet.

In a similar action on the same day, the southeastern province of Binh Duong also helped 1,172 workers return home. Their bus tickets were paid by the provincial trade union organisation.

According to the Chairman of the provincial Labour Federation, 106 enterprises in Binh Duong have also funded expenses to travel home for more than 20,000 workers. -VNA
