Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister, Wissanu Krea-ngam, has announced that, following last week's passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Thai government would soon change up to 4 of the annual non-working public holidays in Thailand, effective in 2017, and therefore has asked public and private organizations to wait for the upcoming announcement of changes to Thailand's public holidays, including previously announced and completed 2017 public holidays in Thailand, before producing any 2017 calendars.

The aforementioned announcement by Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister that the Thai government would soon change up to 4 of the annual non-working public holidays in Thailand, effective in 2017, mentions 2 possible candidates, the May 5, Coronation Day, and the December 5, King's Birthday, annual public holidays of Thailand.

Recall that, last summer (2016-08-01), the Thai government already released the official list and dates of the annual bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Thailand, for the upcoming calendar year 2017, with the exception of the Royal Ploughing Ceremony annual non-working public holiday of Thailand, which was announced later the same month (2016-08-14).
