The southern province of Binh Duong will provide 500,000 VND each for 3,500 workers who cannot return home to enjoy the 2014 Lunar New Year (Tet) festival.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Le Thanh Cung said on December 13 that the money was part of a sum of 134 billion VND sourced from the local budget to support disadvantaged people in the province.

Due to production difficulty, it is forecast that a large number of workers in the province will not be able to return home on the occasion of Tet holiday.-VNA
