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) non-working public holiday in Gabon, would be Friday, July 17, 2015.

As has generally been the case in the past (2012-10-23, 2010-11-14 and 2010-09-08), apart from the past 2 years (2014-07-27 and 2013-08-07), the aforementioned announced date follows 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 over a decade ago (1998-06-29).
