Gabon's Ministre du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Prévoyance Sociale has announced that the date of the upcoming Aïd El Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday, would be observed as a non-working public holiday on Friday, August 9, 2013.
Contrary to what has generally been the case in the past (2012-10-23, 2010-11-14 and 2010-09-08), the aforementioned announced date does not follow the Saudi Umm al-Qura calendar.
The 2 Muslim public holidays for the End of Ramadan and the Feast of Sacrifice were added to the list of Gabonese public holidays a decade ago (1998-06-29).
