According to a circular from the central government, China will maintain week-long or Golden Week public holidays around the Spring Festival, the May Day and the National Day in 2007.

This was contained in a circular about holiday arrangements for 2007, issued earlier this month (2006-12-14), by the State Council, has been posted on the website of the National Tourism Administration.
