The government of Slovakia has announced that it is considering reducing the number of annual public holidays and non-working days in Slovakia to spur economic growth.

The aforementioned statement by Slovak premier, Robert Fico, does not specify which annual public holiday would be dropped, but in all estimates it should not have any impact on the 2012 Slovak public holidays announced last fall (2011-10-08).

The governments of neighboring Slovenia (2012-05-02) and Croatia (2012-03-06) are also considering a reduction in their respective number of annual non-working public holidays.
