Indonesia's Minister for manpower and transmigration, Jacob Nuwa Wea, has released the official list of Indonesian public holidays for the calendar year 2003.

The announced list of 2003 public holidays also includes the dates of "cuti bersama" (joint holidays), introduced at the end of last year (2002-11-07), and which are meant to link public holidays with nearby weekends, to give Indonesians an incentive to travel in Indonesia.

For 2003, the joint holidays are: November 24, 27, and 28, as well as December 26.

Additionally, to maximize the effect of the other public holidays, many of the Muslim and Christian public holidays were moved to the nearest Monday or Friday.
