A press statement released by the Chief Minister’s Office of Malaysia's state of Sarawak has announced that the state government of Sarawak had decided to move the date of the annual public holiday in Malaysia's state of Sarawak for the Birthday of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sarawak.

As per the aforementioned announcement, due to the recent (2017-07-13 and 2017-04-29) change of the Malaysian annual non-working public holiday for the official birthday of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V, to September 9, 2017, the date of the annual public holiday in Malaysia's state of Sarawak for the Birthday of the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sarawak in 2018 will be changed from September 9 to Saturday, October 13, 2018.
