Furniture companies in Binh Duong are proposing for more autonomy in imposing Covid-19 measures as they reopen after months of social distancing.

Members of Binh Duong Furniture Association said due to the limited number of government workers, their proposals to resume production have faced delays, according to Binh Duong Newspaper.

There are about 50 staff working as industrial park managers in the province, though there are around 3,900 companies.

Apart from these parks, there are over 50,000 companies in the province.

Deputy Director of Binh Duong Department of Industry and Trade Nguyen Thanh Toan said the province is set to issue guidelines for companies to reopen with safety measures.

The province is currently letting companies test their own workers. It allows the combination of samples from three workers in one test to reduce costs.
