The Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced the expected dates of the non-working public holidays in Ethiopia for the calendar year 2013.

As usual (2012-01-14 and 2010-01-12), most of the changes relate to the confirmation of the expected dates of public holidays based on the Islamic calendar and on the Ethiopic calendar.

In our opinion, some of the aforementioned Muslim public holidays dates are likely to be revised, in particular the announced date for the Id Al Adaha / Arefa (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday whose announced date is a day, if not two, late.
