Ho Chi Minh City (VNA) – The Ho Chi Minh City Federation of Labour hosted a feast day, the 10 th of its kind, in the city on February 5, attracting 600 local workers who could not afford a journey to their homes.

The municipal leaders granted gifts to participating workers, each worth 500,000 VND (22.7 USD).

The Suoi Tien cultural amusement park company also offered 600 free entrance tickets to participants.

Vice Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Tat Thanh Cang, who was present at the event, said the city’s 2015 socio-economic achievements were partly attributed to workers and cadres.

He hoped that they will continue standing side-by-side with their employers to overcome difficulties, and hone their work skills to meet the demands of integration.
