Earlier today, the Cabinet of the Government of Mongolia announced that the upcoming Naadam 2017 non-working public holidays in Mongolia would begin on Monday, July 10, 2017, instead of July 11.
The Naadam non-working public holidays in Mongolia, originally lasting 3 days, were first extended by 2 days as a one-off event by the declaration of Thursday and Friday, July 14 and 15, 2011, as one-off non-working public holidays in Mongolia, to link the Naadam annual public holidays with the subsequent weekend (2011-06-30).
The extension of the annual Naadam non-working public holidays in Mongolia from 3 to 5 days was then made permanent, a few years later, when the Parliament of Mongolia approved amendments to the Law on Celebrating Public Festivals and Memorable Days which added July 14 and 15 as additional annual non-working public holidays in Mongolia (2014-07-01).
Note that in compensation for the declaration of Monday, July 10, 2017, as the first day of the Naadam 2017 non-working public holidays in Mongolia, Sunday, July 16, 2017, has been declared as a working day in Mongolia.
