The Ministry of Labor and Social Development of Kyrgyzstan has announced that it would soon submit a draft resolution "On The Transfer Of Non-working Days In Connection With Upcoming New Year Holidays" which would create a 4-day period of non-working public holidays in Kyrgyzstan around the upcoming New Year public holiday of Kyrgyzstan.

If something was to come out of today's announcement, then it would be 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.

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).
