The government of Kazakhstan has announced the dates of non-working days related to the upcoming public holidays in the month of May 2010.

As per the Kazakhstan government's communique, the May 1st, Unity Day, public holiday will give rise to an additional non-working public holiday on Monday, May 3rd, 2010, as May 1st falls on a non-working day in 2010.

Similarly, the May 9th, Victory Day, public holiday will give rise to an additional non-working public holiday on Monday, May 10th, 2010, as May 9th also falls on a non-working day this year.
