Dong Nai (VNA)
– The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Dong Nai province and the Hanoi University of Culture have held a seminar on improving factory workers’ social life in the southern region.

Dong Nai has the largest index growth compared to other provinces, attracting about 1 million labourers working in factories and industrial zones, 70 percent of whom come from other provinces, according to the General Statistics Office. 

Although many labourers are from Dong Nai, their personal and social lives need more attention and care. Many businesses, for example, have not satisfied entertainment needs of their workers or provided them with quality accommodations.

Thousands of workers are renting rooms in unsafe areas with poor infrastructure to save accommodation costs.

At the seminar, many officials discussed measures to enhance workers’ social life in Dong Nai and neighbouring provinces. More sports halls, libraries, hospitals, schools and cultural houses should be built in the future, they said.

After the seminar, about 80 projects were submitted to authorities.-VNA
