A communique from Panama's Secretaría de Comunicación de Estado has announced that Friday, November 4, 2011, would be an official public holiday.
Similarly to the Decreto Ejecutivo No. 498 of 2 years ago (2009-10-27), this year's Decreto Ejecutivo No. 667 does not limit the "sandwich" public holiday to the public sector although the language of Article 1 of the decree is confusing ("y disponer el cierre en todo el territorio nacional de las Oficinas Públicas Nacionales y Municipales").
November 4th, sandwiched between the annual public holidays of November 3rd and 5th, is normally observed only by the public sector and the banking industry (whose bank holidays are regulated by the Resolución SBP No. 124-006 de 4 de diciembre de 2006).
