The administrative government of Macau has issued an executive order(Ordem Executiva n.º 60/2000 - Define os feriados na Região Administrativa Especial de Macau) which specifies the amended list of annual non-working public holidays in Macau following last year's handover of Macau to mainland China.

As per the April 1987, Macau Pact, Portugal agreed to hand over sovereignty of Macau to the People's Republic of China in December 1999 and, as such the last 11 days of 1999 were recently (11-Nov-1999) declared as one-off non-working public holidays to coincide with the upcoming handover of Macau to the People's Republic of China.

The 2000 non-working public holidays in Macau were, for their part, declared on an ad hoc basis (21-Dec-1999) and the aforementioned Ordem Executiva n.º 60/2000 enshrines on a permanent basis the concept of keeping some Catholic public holidays (28-Dec-1999).
