The Labor Ministry of Kyrgyzstan has announced that Monday, March 7, 2011, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstan.

Declaring Monday, March 7, 2011, a one-off non-working public holiday will create a 3-day weekend in Kyrgyzstan, when combined with the upcoming International Women's Day public holiday observed annually on March 8 in Kyrgyzstan.

In compensation for the aforementioned one-off bridge public holiday, the day of Saturday, March 5, 2011, has been declared a regular working day in Kyrgyzstan.

Having an extra bridge non-working public holiday compensated by declaring a weekend day as a regular working day is common in Kyrgyzstan (2010-10-07, 2010-08-25, 2010-02-15, 2009-12-11, 2008-12-19 and 2007-12-27).
