Moldova's Vice Minister of Economy and Trade, Sergiu Sainciuc, has announced that the Government of Moldova had declared 4, one-off, public holidays for the upcoming end of the year; December 31, 2007, and January 2, 3, and 4, 2008.

These 4 one-off public holidays, when combined with the January 1, 7 and 8 annual public holidays, and the weekends, will give 10 consecutive days of non-working public holiday on the citizens of Moldova.

To compensate these 4 public holidays, the government has decreed 4 Saturdays that will be regular working days; December 29, 2007, and January 26, February 16, and March 15, 2008.

Moldova's labour code (Codul Muncii al Republicii Moldova) had to be amended, again (2003-03-28), to allow the government to perform this holidays juggling.
