The government of Laos has released an amended and extended version of its previously-announced annual official list of non-working public holidays in Laos for the calendar year 2016.

The aforementioned announcement thus amends the list of annual non-working public holidays in Laos for the calendar year 2016, as announced last autumn (2015-12-18), and as was the case in many past years (2015-04-06, 2012-04-05, 2012-01-17, 2009-04-10 and 2008-04-08), but not all (2013-12-27, 2013-01-28 and 2011-04-09), the aforementioned announcement extends the annual 3-day Pi Mai public holiday, unusually extending for a 4th day in 2016, but a Saturday, to include Tuesday, April 12, 2016, as a compensatory non-working public holiday in Laos.
