Late this week, Ecuador's President, Rafael Correa Delgado, issued Executive Decree 1452, declaring Friday, December 26, 2008, and Friday, January 2, 2009, as one-off bridge public holidays (días de descanso obligatorio), for both the public and private sectors.

These 2 additional public holidays will be compensated by making Saturday, January 10, and Saturday, January 17, 2009, normal working days in Ecuador.
