As expected, at today's cabinet meeting, the Government of Armenia approved, by a unanimous vote, amendments to the law on holidays and memorable days which will reduce the number of non-working public holidays in Armenia around the New Year and Armenian Christmas annual public holidays of Armenia.

Yesterday (13-Dec-2017), the Government of Armenia had announced that at today's cabinet meeting, it would consider amendments to the law on holidays and memorable days, with a view to reduce the number of early January non-working public holidays in Armenia.

Speaking to the media after today's cabinet meeting, Presidential Chief of Staff, Vahe Stepanyan, confirmed that the aforementioned changes to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Armenia would only take effect on June 1st, 2018, thus leaving unchanged the dates of the 2018 public holidays in Armenia, as announced by the Government of Armenia, last month (21-Nov-2017).

The last changes to the annual list of Armenian public holidays, was made almost a decade ago, when the government of Armenia amended the "Law on Armenian Holidays and Memory Days", by adding 7 non-working public holidays, around the time of Christmas (05-Dec-2009).
