After declaring Chinese Lunar New Year as a one-off non-working public holiday in Suriname in 2011, 2014 and 2015, the government of Suriname has amended its annual list of non-working public holidays in Suriname beginning with the calendar year 2015, by making Chinese Lunar New Year a new annual non-working public holiday in Suriname.

The aforementioned declaration of Chinese Lunar New Year as a new annual non-working public holiday in Suriname ("het Chinees Nieuwjaar voortaan zal zijn gelijkgesteld met de zondag, met alle daaraan verbonden rechtsgevolgen en gebruiken") was made by the Bouterse-Ameerali administration, after Chinese Lunar New Year had been as a one-off non-working public holiday in Suriname in 2011, 2014 and 2015 (27-Jan-2011, 15-Jan-2014, and 17-Mar-2014).

The government of Suriname has often announced new religious and ethnic public holidays, one-off or annual, in recent years (17-Nov-2014, 20-Oct-2014, 25-Jul-2014, 14-Oct-2013, 02-Jun-2013, 22-Mar-2013, 24-Nov-2010, 13-Nov-2010, 30-Oct-2010, and 08-Aug-2007).
