Kyrgyzstan's Prime Minister, Sapar Isakov, has signed a resolution which confirms and officializes the previously-announced draft resolution "On The Transfer Of Non-working Days In Connection With Upcoming New Year Holidays" which will create a 4-day period of non-working public holidays in Kyrgyzstan around the upcoming New Year 2018 public holiday of Kyrgyzstan.

The aforementioned resolution "On The Transfer Of Non-working Days In Connection With Upcoming New Year Holidays", follows the release, earlier this month (2017-12-04 and 2017-12-01), by the Ministry of Labor and Social Development of Kyrgyzstan, of a draft resolution "On The Transfer Of Non-working Days In Connection With Upcoming New Year Holidays", which is a repeat of last year, when the "Government Resolution Dated December 12, 2016 No.665 About Transfer Of The Working Day" (2016-12-14 and 2016-11-26), specified that January 1 to 3, 2017, would be non-working public holidays in Kyrgyzstan, but that Monday, January 9, 2017, would be a regular day for Tuesday, January 3 being a one-off non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstan in 2017.

That earlier draft was open for public discussion, so that, according to the press-secretary of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development of Kyrgyzstan's, Kymbat Kadyralieva, "All citizens of Kyrgyzstan can send their comments and comments on this issue. If the majority of the population decides that the shifts of the weekend will create inconveniences, then there will be no changes. In the case of a positive response from Kyrgyz people, the government will issue a corresponding resolution.".

In the years before, the initial declaration of the annual public holidays in Kyrgyzstan for the upcoming calendar year (2015-12-24, 2015-12-09, 2015-07-14, 2013-12-22, 2013-01-04, 2012-03-14 and 2011-01-01), was often followed by the piecemeal declaration of one-off bridge non-working public holidays throughout the year, compensated by declaring a weekend day as a regular working day (2016-04-20, 2016-02-16, 2015-12-24, 2014-12-26, 2013-04-28, 2011-12-31, 2010-11-11, 2010-08-25, 2010-02-15, 2009-12-11, 2008-12-19 and 2007-12-27).
