Mongolia Mulls Naadam 2016 Public Holidays Shift
 
(Posted on Sunday, March 6, 2016)

Source: Montsame Agency (Ulaanbaatar)

The Cabinet of the Government of Mongolia has announced to the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar, and the governors of all Mongolian provinces, that the upcoming Naadam 2016 non-working public holidays in Mongolia should be shifted due to the conflict of the 2016 Naadam non-working public holidays in Mongolia with the upcoming 11th ASEM Summit.

Although, the decision does not seem final yet, the aforementioned statement by the Cabinet of the Government of Mongolia, concerning a shift in the dates of the upcoming Naadam 2016 non-working public holidays in Mongolia, states that Mongolia will "celebrate the Naadam on July 15-25--instead of 11-15".

The Naadam non-working public holidays in Mongolia, originally lasting 3 days, were first extended by 2 days as a one-off event by the declaration of Thursday and Friday, July 14 and 15, 2011, as one-off non-working public holidays in Mongolia, to link the Naadam annual public holidays with the subsequent weekend (30-Jun-2011).

The extension of the annual Naadam non-working public holidays in Mongolia from 3 to 5 days was then made permanent, a few years later, when the Parliament of Mongolia approved amendments to the Law on Celebrating Public Festivals and Memorable Days which added July 14 and 15 as additional annual non-working public holidays in Mongolia (01-Jul-2014).

One aspect of the aforementioned announcement which is also unclear is whether the shift in the upcoming Naadam 2016 non-working public holidays in Mongolia will be nationwide, or whether there will be a difference between Ulaanbaatar and the provinces of Mongolia, as was the case on some past occasions (06-Jun-2008).
