Macau's Government has followed yesterday's separate announcements by China and Hong Kong that September 3, 2015, would be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in China and Hong Kong to mark the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II, by announcing that Thursday, September 3, 2015, would also be a one-off non-working public holiday in Macau.

Yesterday, China (2015-05-13) then Hong Kong (2015-05-13), announced that they had declared Thursday, September 3, 2015, as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in China and Hong Kong to commemorate the "70th anniversary of the victory in World War II".

The aforementioned announcement that Thursday, September 3, 2015, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Macau to mark the 70th anniversary of Japan's surrender in World War II, thus amends and extends last year's announcement full list of official Macau non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2015 in Macau (2014-04-10) and of the one-off additional non-working public holidays in 2015 in Macau (2014-03-25).

A spokesperson for the Macau Government is reported as saying that the government of Macau had yet to decide whether September 3 will be a one-off non-working public holiday in Macau or whether it will become an annual non-working public holiday in Macau.

In the case of the announced Thursday, September 3, 2015, non-working public holiday in Macau, the Macau government also has yet to decide whether September 3 will be a common public holiday or an obligatory holiday.
