Chilean January 2 Public Holiday Ruled-Out

Chile's Minister of Labor, Evelyn Matthei, has announced that the government of Chile will reject the declaration of an additional one-off public holiday on Monday, January 2, 2012, as per the bill recently introduced in the Chilean Senate to compensate the fact that the upcoming New Year's Day public holiday falls on a Sunday.

Last week (21-Dec-2011), apparently inspired by Ecuador's recent declaration of January 2, 2012, as a one-off public holiday (16-Dec-2011), a bill was introduced in the Chilean Senate's Comisión de Gobierno Interior y Regionalización declaring Monday, January 2, 2012, as a one-off public holiday to compensate the fact that the upcoming New Year's Day public holiday falls on a Sunday.

In a separate announcement, the Chilean Banking and Financial Markets Regulatory Commission (la Superintendencia de Bancos e Instituciones Financieras) has issued a statement ruling-out the declaration of a one-off bank holiday in Chile on Friday, December 30, 2011, to compensate the fact that this year's, December 31, annual bank holiday falls on a Saturday ("no corresponde su traslado al día viernes 30 y por ello los bancos atenderán ese día de manera normal").
