Taiwan's Central Personnel Administration has released an updated list of 2009 public holidays in Taiwan.

As we had surmised at the end of last year (2008-12-05), following the comments attributed to Taiwan's Premier, Liu Chao-Shiuan, the government of Taiwan seems to be following a new official policy of Friday bridge public holidays that extend beyond this year's, one-off, January 2 bridge public holiday (2008-12-02).

In that context, an additional bridge public holiday has been scheduled for Friday, May 29, 2009 (the preceding day, a Thursday, is the annual Dragon Boat Festival public holiday). In compensation, Saturday, June 6, 2009, will be a regular working day.
