Earlier today, the State Council of China released China's official list of 2010 public holidays, including the list of working Saturdays and Sundays that compensate for some of the bridge public holidays and for the traditional spring and fall, week-long, Golden Week public holidays.

The announcement, dated from last night, and officially entitled the "State Council Decision On Revising The National Holidays And Festivals, In Order To Facilitate Various Localities And Departments To Make Reasonable Arrangements For Early Holiday Travel, Transportation, Production Management And Other Related Work", moves some of the weekend non-working days to Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays that adjoin mid-week one-day public holidays, as well as declaring a 7-day Golden Week in the spring and in the fall, as was done in previous years (10-Dec-2008, 14-Dec-2006, 22-Dec-2005, 20-Dec-2004, and 19-Dec-2003).

The periods of non-working public holidays in China, in 2010, will be:

January 1-3
February 13-19
April 3-5
May 1-3
June 14-16
September 22-24
October 1-7

As compensation for the extension of some of the 1-day public holidays to adjoin a weekend, the following dates have been declared as regular working days:

Saturday, February 20
Sunday, February 21
Saturday, June 12
Sunday, June 13
Sunday, September 19
Saturday, September 25
Sunday, September 26

Recall that, as per the long-awaited draft plan on the public holidays overhaul of 2007 (09-Nov-2007), approved later the following month (17-Dec-2007), the spring golden week begins on the eve of the Lunar New Year.

Weeklong, Golden Week, public holidays were introduced in 1999 (20-Sep-1999), in an effort to boost internal tourism and domestic consumption.
