Mr. Bui Hoang Mai, Director of Bac Ninh Industrial Zones Management Board.

`My company has workers with household registration in Hanoi, but the workplace is only 1-2 km away, so they still have to eat and stay at the company or have a shuttle bus, which is very inconvenient. Can the province have any other plans to facilitate this?`

Answering the above question, Mr. Mai said that in the context of the epidemic still being complicated, there must still be a shuttle bus.

`If workers are allowed to ride their own motorbikes, it will be difficult to control the movement process. If they contract an epidemic, it will not be easy to trace and affect the business itself,` Mr. Mai said, adding that the coming days will depend on

Representative of Diana Unicharm Company expressed concern.

`According to current regulations, it is necessary to be quarantined in a centralized location for 14 days, then quarantined at a hotel for another 14 days before being able to go to work. Such time affects the working time budget,` this person said.

Mr. Vuong Quoc Tuan, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Bac Ninh province, said that in April-May the epidemic was complicated, so immigration applications for experts were backlogged by more than 300 people, this number is very large.

The third concern is that businesses have to arrange for workers to eat three meals at the company, which is costly and time-consuming.

In response, the leaders of Bac Ninh province said that workers are subjects that need to be protected so as not to disrupt production, so the regulation that workers eat three meals at the factory is mandatory, there can be no such thing as liking or disliking food.

Enterprises arrange for workers to leave the evening shift no later than 8:00 p.m. every day. When the workers return home at 9:00 p.m., the inn owners must take attendance, and all business households in the vicinity of the inn must close.

`By the end of September at the latest, companies will arrange for each company to live in a boarding house, not allowing multiple companies to live in one area so that when there is an infection, it can be easily traced and only affects one factory,` Mr. Tuan
