The spokesperson for the Generalitat de Catalunya (Spain's Autonomous Region of Catalonia), Francesc Homs, has announced that the Government of Catalonia was favorable to the business community's recent proposal to move mid-week public holidays to the nearest Friday or Monday.

Under the aforementioned proposal, isolated, fixed-date, mid-week public holidays in Catalonia would be moved to the nearest Friday or Monday, except for 3 annual public holidays: January 1st, October 12, and December 25.

The changes, even if approved, would in all likelihood not affect the list of 2012 public holidays in Spain's Autonomous Region of Cataluña as published last spring by the Conselleria de Treball de la Generalitat de Catalunya (2011-05-16).
