The federation also instructed trade union organizations at different levels to persuade employers to arrange coaches or give ticket subsidies to disadvantaged employees who have not returned to their home towns for Tet for many years.

The center for supporting young workers under the municipal Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Organization also announced a so-called Spring Coach program, under which free transport means will be arranged for 1,500 young workers in difficult circumstances to return to their home villages in central and northern central localities for the Tet holiday.

Those who wish to take the free trip can register online at or at offices of the center.

Presenting free transport tickets to people in difficult circumstances to enable them to return to their home towns for the Tet holiday has become an annual tradition of many mass organizations in Ho Chi Minh City.
