Labor export businesses should work with their partners to organize warm and safe Tet holidays for Vietnamese workers abroad, said Head of the Oversea Labor Management Department Nguyen Ngoc Quynh at a press conference in Hanoi on Thursday.

Mr. Quynh also called on Vietnamese workers to comply with local habits and customs of the countries where they work.
The department has sent a dispatch asking businesses to report the list of their staff on duty both domestically and abroad during Tet holidays before January 31. The department will cooperate with them to timely solve any problem related to oversea Vietnamese workers during the Lunar New Year festival from February 6 to 14.
According to the department, the country sent 115,980 workers abroad last year, up 8.5 percent over 2014. It was the second consecutive year Vietnam saw the number of workers abroad exceed 100,000.
