Taiwan's Directorate-General of Personnel Administration has finally released the official calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2013.

As usual (2011-09-29, 2010-12-16, 2009-08-17, 2008-11-21, 2007-09-13, 2006-11-20, 2005-11-21, 2004-11-25, 2003-11-04, 2002-11-26, 2001-11-26 and 2000-12-01) these public holidays are subdivided into many categories: Weekends, Statutory and general national holidays, Particular Parties' Days, Makeup holidays, and days in lieu ("Adjusts to holiday" and "Adjusts to work" dates).

This past summer (2012-08-18), Taiwan's CPA had released a draft calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2013 with the pronouncement by Executive Yuan spokesman, Hu Yu-Wei, that although that draft calendar of 2013 public holidays in Taiwan was pending final approval from the Cabinet, "unless something unexpected arises, the Cabinet is expected to approve the calendar as worked out by the CPA".

Indeed the extra day in lieu public holiday announced in the August draft of the 2013 Taiwanese public holidays to compensate the conflict of the dates of the Children's Day and Tomb Sweeping Day public holidays, was dropped in the final version of the calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the year 2013.

Two years ago (2010-08-31), Taiwan's Cabinet-level Central Personnel Administration had similarly issued a draft of 2011 non-working public holidays, a draft which was only officially confirmed much later (2010-12-16).
