Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has once again confirmed that the upcoming Corpus Christi annual non-working public holiday would be observed on Thursday, June 19, 2014, in all sectors of the Bolivian economy.

As per the aforementioned announcement, this public holiday will be a non-working public holiday for both the public and private sectors ("es un feriado nacional con suspensión de actividades, tanto públicas y privadas"). The Bolivian Corpus Christi annual public holiday has been rumored to be on the way out in the past (2009-04-08 and 2007-06-06), but keeps on being reaffirmed every year (2013-05-29, 2012-06-05, 2011-06-06, 2010-01-29 and 2009-06-09).

The aforementioned announcement also confirms that Saturday, June 21, 2014, would be a non-working public holiday in Bolivia, on account of the Aymara New Year (Willkakuti), which became a non-working public holiday in Bolivia, five years ago (2009-06-18 and 2009-06-17).
