The government of Moldova has released its initial annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the upcoming calendar year 2018.

Until a few years ago, an initial list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the upcoming calendar year was released, which did not include any bridge public holidays which are usually announced later, on a case-by-case basis (05-Jul-2014, 22-Oct-2013, 07-Dec-2013, 08-Feb-2013, 14-Nov-2012, 11-Apr-2012, 08-Dec-2011, 22-Feb-2012, 18-Feb-2011, 10-Aug-2010, 04-Dec-2009 and 10-Dec-2008) to be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day in Moldova.

But, then, for the past 2 years (17-Oct-2016 and 28-Dec-2015), the initial announcement of the public holidays in Moldova for 2016 and 2017 were accompanied by a list of bridge public holidays to be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day in Moldova, most notably for 2017, when the government of Moldova announced an extension to the list of 2017 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2017"), by adding 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2017.

This went well for 2016, but for 2017, the proposal to add 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova, was stalled by opposition to it from Deputy Education Minister, Christine Boag, and was placed on hold "sine die" (02-Dec-2016). Later in 2017, 2 of these 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova were confirmed, albeit at the last minute (24-May-2017 and 26-Apr-2017).

The declaration of Friday, September 1, 2017, as a one-off bridge public sector holiday in Moldova to link the weekend to the annual August 31 National Language Day public holiday of Moldova, had originally been announced last autumn (17-Oct-2016), when the government of Moldova announced an extension to the list of 2017 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2017"), by adding 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2017.

The initial decision by the Moldovan Cabinet of Ministers to declare Friday, September 1, 2017, a one-off non-working public holiday to be compensated by Saturday, September 9, 2017, being declared a regular working day in Moldova, was never confirmed (15-Aug-2017).
