More than 90 percent of migrant workers in Dongguan, Guangdong province, who are returning home to celebrate the Spring Festival holiday, will come back to the southern manufacturing city after the celebrations, a survey revealed.

The number of migrant workers who intended to return to Dongguan after the festival, which falls on Jan 31, increased by 2.4 percentage from a year earlier to 91.5 percent, according to a survey by the city's human resources authority.

According to the survey, which covered some 100,000 workers in 133 companies, more than 70 percent of migrant workers planned to go home for their family reunions during the weeklong Spring Festival holiday.

"I will work hard in Dongguan next year as the business environment has improved a lot," said Liu Shaojun, a 26-year-old worker from Hunan province.
