The Taiwanese Directorate General of Personnel Administration has announced that the Cabinet of Taiwan had formally approved the previously-released list of annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for its administrative agencies during the upcoming calendar year 2017.
Contrary to what happened for the past 2 years (2015-10-15 and 2014-06-12), for the list of 2016 and 2015 public holidays in Taiwan, the aforementioned previously-released announcement of the official annual calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2017, was released more than a month before the deadline (2016-04-13), in line with the regulations adopted in March 2013, which obligate the Directorate General of Personnel Administration to make public the national holiday calendar for following year before June 1st of the previous year (2013-05-31).
Despite a frenzy of discussions about rolling back national holidays in Taiwan, last spring (2016-04-10 and 2016-03-29), the aforementioned officialized calendar of official non-working public holidays in Taiwan for the upcoming calendar year 2017, is still in line with the extension of Taiwanese non-working public holidays announced by the Cabinet of the Government of Taiwan (the Executive Yuan), for the calendar year 2015, and then made permanent, which adds bridge public holidays to the public holidays law in Taiwan (2014-10-21).
