Bangladesh 2013 Bank Holidays Announced

Bangladesh's Central Bank (Bangladesh Bank) has released its list of official bank holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2013.

The aforementioned announcement of the official bank holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2013 mirrors the list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for 2013 released last fall (2012-11-30), and it also contains a few odd dates.

In particular, the date stated for the Buddha Purnima (Baishakhi Purnima) public holiday is listed a month 2 days earlier than one would have expected (and which is listed by the governments of India and Sri Lanka), and we expect that the announced date for the 2013 Buddha Purnima bank holiday in Bangladesh will be amended at a later date as was done for the corresponding 2012 date of Buddha Purnima (2012-05-02).
