The Government of Taiwan, the Executive Yuan, has announced that due to the arrival of typhoon Dujuan, a one-off non-working public holiday had been declared in Taiwan for tomorrow, and that all businesses will be closed on Tuesday, September 29, 2015.
This past summer (2015-07-09), the Government of Taiwan had similarly announced that due to the arrival of typhoon Chan-Hom, a one-off non-working public holiday would be declared in Taiwan on Friday, July 10, 2015, and that all businesses in Taiwan would be closed on that date.
Three years ago (2012-07-29), Taiwan's Personnel Administration Minister, Frank Huang, has announced that Taiwan's Directorate-General of Personnel Administration was considering mandating local governments to convert a normally non-working public holiday into a working day each time a one-off typhoon public holiday is declared. According to the brief accompanying that announcement, in recent years (2014-07-22, 2009-08-07 and 2007-09-18), there had been an average of 3.6 working days per year declared a day off because of typhoons.
In separate announcements, Taiwan's stock market, and the Taiwan Futures Exchange, both announced that they would remain closed tomorrow because of Typhoon Dujuan.
