On Tuesday, Taiwan's Legislature passed the Hakka Basic Act aimed at promoting Hakka language and culture, and obliging the government to designate a national Hakka Day holiday.

The mandated national Hakka Day holiday will be a regular working day (ie. not an official non-working public holiday).

Such declarations of new holidays that are regular working days are common in Taiwan (2009-11-02, 2009-10-21, and 2007-09-21).
