Local sources have confirmed that the previously-announced moving this year's annual May 1st bank holiday to Tuesday, May 7, 2013, would also apply to this year's public holiday and thus to both the private and public sectors of Greece.

Yesterday (2013-04-23), the Bank of Greece, Greece's Central Bank, had issued a communiqué amending the previously-released list of 2013 bank holidays in Greece, by moving this year's annual May 1st bank holiday to Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

Greece's HELEX (the Central Securities Depository) and the Athens Exchange are also expected to move this year's annual May 1st bank holiday to Tuesday, May 7, 2013.

Last summer (2012-07-28), the Bank of Greece had released the list of official non-working public holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2013.
