The Directorate General of Personnel Administration has finally released its annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2016, with the recent additional changes to the regulations governing non-working public holidays in Taiwan.
The list of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2016 had been expected before late May 2015, as new regulations adopted in March 2013, obligate the Directorate General of Personnel Administration to make public the national holiday calendar for following year before June 1st of the previous year (2013-05-31).
But, as was the case last year (2014-06-12), for the list of 2015 public holidays in Taiwan, the aforementioned announcement of the official annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2016, was delayed, due to discussions about substitute public holidays in Taiwan.
Recall that, almost a year ago (2014-10-21), the Cabinet of the Government of Taiwan (the Executive Yuan) approved an extension to the previously-announced annual calendar of non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the calendar year 2015, by adding bridge public holidays to the recently-passed change of public holidays law in Taiwan which added the concept of substitute public holidays when one of Taiwan's official annual non-working public holidays falls on a weekend.
