Philippines March 8 Public Holiday Update
 
(Posted on Friday, March 8, 2013)

A year after the Philippines House of Representatives passed House Bill 3962, which declares March 8 an annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines, the bill remains pending in the Philippines' Senate.

A year ago (11-Mar-2012), the Philippines House of Representatives approved, on third and final reading, House Bill 3962 which declares March 8 an annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines to commemorate "National Women's Day" as a "means of paying tribute to Filipino women for their massive contribution to nation building through their various roles and tasks in society".

Last year (07-Mar-2012), Malacañang, Philippine's presidential palace, had issued a statement confirming that Thursday, March 8, 2012, would not be a non-working public holiday in the Philippines, but this year it did not feel the need to issue a statement confirming that Friday, March 8, 2013, would not be a non-working public holiday in the Philippines, relying on the Philippines media to remind readers that the list of official non-working public holidays for 2013 were as set-out in Proclamation No. 459, s. 2012, which was signed by President Benigno Aquino III, late last summer (01-Sep-2012).
