The NSW parliament has passed laws aiming at clarifying both labour and opening hours issues related to the APEC, one-off, public holiday of September 7, 2007.

The APEC public holiday in Sydney had been announced a last year ago (2006-09-12) and was finally gazetted after much to and fro (2006-10-30, 2006-12-25, 2007-02-28, 2007-03-20, 2007-03-20, and 2007-05-29).

In 2004, Chile declared a municipal holiday on Friday, November 19, 2004, in Chile's capital, Santiago, to coincide with that year's upcoming APEC Summit (2004-10-28).
