Moldova 2017 Public Holidays Extended

The government of Moldova has announced an extension to the list of 2017 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2017"), by adding 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the upcoming calendar year 2017.

For most of the past decade, the annual initial lists of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the coming calendar year did not include any bridge public holidays, which were usually announced later, on a case-by-case basis (2013-12-07, 2013-02-08, 2012-04-11, 2012-02-22, 2011-02-18, 2010-08-10, 2009-12-04 and 2008-12-10).

However, starting 2 years ago (2015-10-26, and 2014-11-16), well in advance of the beginning of the New Year, the government of Moldova announced an extension of 3 bridge non-working public holidays in Moldova in 2015, to be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day in Moldova, and did not tinker any further with that list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2015.

Today's announcement declares three one-off non-working public holidays in Moldova for 2017, to be observed on May 8, June 2, and September 1st, 2017, and to be compensated by the declaration of Saturday, May 13, June 10, and September 9, 2017, as regular working days in Moldova.

Though today's announcement is to be approved officially, the 3 aforementioned one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova are reasonably certain, but what can change is the list of compensatory Saturday working days in Moldova, as happened last year (2015-12-16).

The declaration of a one-off bridge public holiday in Moldova in 2017, on June 2, confirms the addition of June 1st, International Children's Day, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova beginning in the calendar year 2017 (2016-05-30 and 2016-05-27).
