The government of Bangladesh has gazetted the recently-announced list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2017.

Late last month (2016-11-25), Bangladesh's Cabinet Secretary, Mohammad Shafiul Alam, had announced that, after consulting the Bangla Academy, the Religious Affairs Ministry and the Weather Department, the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2017, had approved in Cabinet, with no prior draft, contrary to last year (2015-11-02 and 2015-10-02), and quite late as well.

Today's gazetted list of the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2017 (Memo no.- 05.00.0000.173.08.005.12-270, dated 14 Agrahayana, 1423 Bengali Era), comes as expected (2014-11-03, 2013-11-15, 2012-11-30,...).
