Binh Duong (VNA) – As many as 5,000 workers at industrial parks across southern Binh Duong province will receive free tickets to travel home for family reunion on the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday.

Organised by the local labour confederation, the free-ticket programme has gathered significant support from the business community.

Binh Duong province is now home to 26 industrial parks, covering a total area of 8,800 hectares. The average occupancy rate is 65 percent. A large number of workers in industrial parks come from other provinces and cities, with some as far as the northern region.

The locality plans to lure 1.4 billion USD in FDI in 2016. It vowed to continue to improve the local business climate and its provincial Competitiveness Index by adding support to investors, stepping up administrative reforms and ensuring social welfare.-VNA
