Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Duong Anh Duc spoke highly of efforts by the municipal federation over the last year in raising awareness and sense of responsibility among workers in fighting COVID-19.

The federation staff’s meaningful services and innovative and effective approach to protect the workers’ legitimate rights and benefits have motivated them to overcome difficulties and further engage in local COVID-19 response, he said.

Wishing the workers a New Year of the Tiger full of happiness and success, Duc said he expects the workers to continue their good work to revive the city’s economy, improve living quality and build prosperity for their family. He also expressed his hope local enterprises to grow faster and more sustainably, contributing to the city’s development.

Similar gatherings have been organized in Districts 5, 8 and Go Vap District to deliver thousands of Tet gift packages to workers who plan to not return home for Tet and those suffering from serious illnesses. Thousands of free market coupons have been also given away to poor workers in the city.
