The Minister of Tourism of Argentina's new government, Gustavo Santos, has announced that, contrary to his pronouncements during the recent presidential campaign, Argentine President Mauricio Macri would not reverse any of the annual public holidays or one-off non-working public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos") previously-declared to the end of the calendar year 2016.

Earlier this autumn (2015-10-30), Argentina's Ministry of the Interior had released the full annual official list of non-working public holidays, including the previously-released bridge public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos"), in Argentina for the upcoming calendar year 2016 (2013-11-12).

The aforementioned announcement ("Feriados Nacionales y Puentes Turísticos 2016") is in line with the 2010 decree, published in the Boletín Oficial (Número 32.020, Año CXVIII), implementing a major public holidays revision (2010-11-03) and the Decreto 1768/2013 which lists the one-off non-working bridge public holidays ("feriados con fines turísticos") for the calendar years 2014, 2015 and 2016 (2013-11-12).
