The money will be used to grant assistance in cash, at 500,000 VND (22 USD) per person, for migrant workers who cannot go home on Tet.

President of the Binh Duong Labour Federation Truong Thi Bich Hanh said her agency has called for involvement of businesses and sponsors in practical Tet programmes for workers such as giving free bus tickets and gifts, and making New Year visits to workers who cannot return home on Tet.

Hanh said the union is mobilising donations to offer 4,000 coach tickets for migrant workers.

Binh Duong is now home to over 20 industrial parks, covering a total area of more than 8,800 hectares. A large number of workers in these industrial parks come from other provinces and cities, with some as far as the northern region.
