Sri Lanka's Minister of Home Affairs, Joseph Michael Perera, has published in the "Gazette of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka", the official list of annual Sri Lankan public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

As usual, and despite being titled "Bank Holidays, Public Holidays and Full Moon Poya Days 2016", the aforementioned document does not list any bank holidays; as these are usually declared separately from public holidays and full Moon Poya days (2014-11-14, 2013-10-18, 2014-04-07, 2013-07-05, 2012-06-11, 2012-10-16, 2011-10-10, 2011-08-31, 2010-07-21, 2010-07-12 and 2009-07-06).

A couple of months ago (2015-03-16), the Sri Lanka's Ministry of Public Administration and Home Affairs had published its annual official list of the Sri Lankan Poya Day public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
