Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has announced that the upcoming Corpus Christi and Año Nuevo Aymara annual non-working public holidays would be observed on Thursday, June 7, 2012, and Thursday, June 21, 2012, respectively, in all sectors of the Bolivian economy.
As per the aforementioned announcement, both of these public holidays will be non-working public holidays for both the public and private sectors ("Las dos fechas están declaradas como feriados nacionales, consecuentemente, todas las empresas privadas como el sector público tienen la obligación de cumplir con esas fechas que están declaradas como feriados nacionales").
The June 21, Año Nuevo Aymara (aka. "Solsticio de Invierno" or "Año Nuevo Andino"), public holiday was decreed 3 years ago (18-Jun-2009 and 17-Jun-2009) by Bolivia's cabinet which passed the Decreto Supremo Nº 173 declaring that the Indigenous New Year, on June 21, would henceforth be an annual public holiday in Bolivia.
For its part, Corpus Christi has been rumored to be on the way out in the past (08-Apr-2009 and 06-Jun-2007), but keeps on being reaffirmed every year (06-Jun-2011, 29-Jan-2010 and 09-Jun-2009).
