Cambodia's Prime Minister has signed a Cambodian Royal Government's sub-decree Kor.Bor/Bror.Kor establishing Cambodia's annual list of official non-working public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
As was the case last year (15-Nov-2014), but contrary to previous custom (28-Oct-2013, 23-Oct-2012, 16-Oct-2011, 03-Sep-2010, 25-Aug-2009, 22-Sep-2008 and 03-Aug-2007), the aforementioned decree stipulates that "Any public holiday, which falls on Sunday, worker shall be subjected to be one day carried forward to the next day", instead of "Saturday or Sunday".
The list of official public holidays for 2016 in Cambodia once again includes the June 1st, "International and Cambodian Children's Day", which was introduced a few years ago (03-Sep-2010).
Additionally, the aforementioned decree maintains October 23 as a non-working public holiday in Cambodia to commemorate the Paris Peace Agreements of 1991, as well as the new October 15 non-working public holiday, added last year to mark the death of the King Father (23-Oct-2012).
The October 23 non-working public holiday in Cambodia had previously been canceled in the mid-2000's (15-Sep-2005) in order to promote January 7 as National Liberation Day, which marks the toppling of the Khmer Rouge in 1979.
