The Coordinating Minister for the People's Welfare, Aburizal Bakrie, announced the national holidays and joint leave days for 2008. The 2008 decree on holidays and joint leave stipulates those religious holidays that cannot be moved, 14 national holidays and six days of joint leave.
The Cuti Bersama, collective leave days, were introduced after the 2002 Bali bombings (2002-11-07) to promote internal tourism as a means to compensate diminishing foreign tourism.
