The Moldavian government executive, at yesterday's Cabinet meeting, has approved the declaration of Europe Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova.

The aforementioned announcement follows the recent passage by Moldova's Parliament of a bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova (2016-05-30 and 2016-05-27), and the passage of a bill introduced by the government of Moldova, to declare Western Christmas as an annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, 3 years before (2013-12-19 and 2009-12-04).

However, yesterday's Moldovan Government decision to declare Europe Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova does not amend the list of the annual non-working 2016 public holidays in in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016" and the later "Cu privire la transferul zilei de odihnă în anul 2016"), released last fall (2015-10-26) by the government of Moldova, and which was then completed (2015-12-28 and 2015-12-16), as May 9 is already an annual non-working public holiday in Moldova for Victory Day.
