Taiwan 2011 Public Holidays Draft

Taiwan's Cabinet-level Central Personnel Administration (CPA) has released a draft calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan in 2011.

The draft calendar includes 6 consecutive days off for the Lunar New Year, as well as 3-day weekends for the Peace Memorial Day, the Dragon Boat Festival, the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival, and the National Day public holidays.

The aforementioned draft calendar also confirms last year's restoration of the Children's Day public holiday (2010-03-25). When combined with the April 5, Tomb Sweeping Day public holiday, this means a 4-day public holiday in early April for Taiwanese.

Due to the way Taiwanese public holiday will fall in 2011 (none of the public holidays fall on either a Tuesday or Thursday) there is no need to refer to the provisions of last spring's bill (2010-05-22) that automatically stipulates the declaration of bridge public holidays, whenever a public holiday falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday, to be compensated on a working Saturday.
