Bolivia's Minister of Labour has issued the "comunicado 27/2016" which confirms that the upcoming Corpus Christi annual non-working public holiday of Bolivia would be observed on Thursday, May 26, 2016, in all sectors of the Bolivian economy.
As per the aforementioned announcement, contained in the "comunicado 27/2016" in line with the "Decreto Supremo 2750 del 1 de mayo de 2016", this public holiday will be a non-working public holiday for both the public and private sectors ("El Ministerio de Trabajo recordó que el jueves 26 de mayo es feriado nacional en Bolivia por Corpus Christi").
