Bolivia's Ministry of Labour has announced that the upcoming, June 21, Año Nuevo Aymara public holiday would be observed by both the private and public sectors, nationwide.
Last year (18-Jun-2009), Bolivia's Minister of Culture, Pablo Groux, had announced that the cabinet of the Government of Bolivia had passed Decreto Supremo Nº 173 declaring that the Indigenous New Year, on June 21, would henceforth be an annual public holiday in Bolivia.
However many eastern provinces refused to observe the holiday arguing that this was a holiday limited to the Andean region from which the current President, Evo Morales, hailed.
