Macau's lawmakers have approved the Macau Government's bill declaring Thursday, September 3, 2015, as a mandatory one-off public holiday in Macau to celebrate the China's victory over Japan in WW2.

Last May, China (13-May-2015) then Hong Kong (13-May-2015), announced that they had declared, or would declare, Thursday, September 3, 2015, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in China and Hong Kong to commemorate China's victory over Japan (officially named "the 70th Anniversary of the Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War and the World Anti-Fascist War Victory Commemoration Day").

The day after (14-May-2015), Macau's Government followed suit by announcing that Thursday, September 3, 2015, would also be a one-off non-working public holiday in Macau.

The aforementioned announcement that Thursday, September 3, 2015, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Macau to mark the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II, thus amends and extends last year's announcement full list of official Macau non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2015 in Macau (10-Apr-2014) and of the one-off additional non-working public holidays in 2015 in Macau (25-Mar-2014).

At the time, the government of Macau had yet to decide whether September 3 would be a common public holiday or an obligatory holiday. As per yesterday's vote, September 3, 2015, has been declared a mandatory holiday, meaning that all those who have to work on that day have the right to be paid triple their normal salary.

Earlier this week (09-Jul-2015), the Hong Kong Legislative Council (LegCo) also finally approved the "Special Holiday (3 September 2015) Bill", which declares Thursday, September 3, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, to mark the 70th anniversary of the Chinese victory in World War II.
