Doosan Heavy Industries Vietnam will cover the cost of bus travel for more than 300 of its workers during Tet.

Workers from outside central Quang Ngai province account for 12.8 per cent of its workforce, and the company will provide eight 45 and 50-seat buses to carry 308 employees and their families home for the Tet holiday.

The buses head out in three directions to 14 cities and provinces: Quang Nam, Da Nang, Thua Thien Hue, Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Thanh Hoa, Ninh Binh, Hai Phong, Hanoi, Binh Dinh, Gia Lai and Dak Lak.

Doosan Vina is one of only a few companies in the country to implement such a policy for its employees.

After the nine-day break, buses will bring workers back to start work on February 9 and 10, depending on their location.

This is the eleventh year in a row Doosan Vina has implemented the policy and 2,963 employees have benefited.

Doosan Vina is a high-tech industrial complex at the Dung Quat Economic Zone in Quang Ngai province employing 2,000 Vietnamese workers. The company supplies the mega infrastructure that make modern life a reality.

Products include boilers for thermal power plants, desalination plants the size of a football pitch that turn sea water into fresh, material handling systems like cranes that are the heart of logistics at ports around the world, and structural steel for buildings and infrastructure developments. To date the company has exported products worth $2.4 billion.
