The government of Moldova has announced an extension to the list of 2016 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016"), by adding a one-off 2016 non-working public holiday in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
Before last year, the initial list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the coming years did not include any bridge public holidays, which were usually announced later, on a case-by-case basis (2013-12-07, 2013-02-08, 2012-04-11, 2012-02-22, 2011-02-18, 2010-08-10, 2009-12-04 and 2008-12-10). However, last year (2014-11-16), well in advance of the beginning of 2015, the government of Moldova announced an extension of 3 bridge non-working public holidays in Moldova in 2015, to be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day in Moldova, and did not tinker any further with that list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2015.
Today's announcement declares only a single one-off non-working public holiday in Moldova for 2016, to be observed on Monday, March 7, 2016, and to be compensated by the declaration of Saturday, March 5, 2016, as a regular working day.
