The VNAT said the suggestion had come from several quarters, seeking to give a fillip to post Covid-19 domestic tourism.

This year, the national holiday falls on a Wednesday, many localities and more than 30 businesses said the holiday could be extended until the end of that week to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Day and promote domestic tourism. , Director General of the General Department of Customs Nguyen Trung Khanh said on Tuesday. .

Mr. Ha Tat Thang, Director of the Department of Occupational Safety and Health, the advisory body for annual holidays under the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. XH, said he has not received any official documents with such comments from the tourism industry.

“Recovering after the epidemic, businesses all want to focus on restoring production.Each sector will have its own direction, but everything should serve the same interest", he said, adding that he would discuss the proposal with the labor ministry when the official text is received.He said whether the holiday would be extended or not would be decided by the government.
