Posted on Tuesday, February 5, 2008
The Government announced that it was canceling 3 of the 2008 bridge public holidays that it had decreed in May of last year.
The joint-decree cancels the Shared Holiday by Government Decree for an Extended Weekend of February 8 (three days only from today), May 2, and May 19, 2008, which were all declared last summer (2007-05-31).
The decree does not cover the private sector, but it is expected to follow the government overall.
Cuti Bersama were introduced after the 2002 Bali bombings (2002-11-07) to promote internal tourism as a means to compensate diminishing foreign tourism.
