Assistant government spokesman, Athisit Chainuwat, has announced that Thailand's Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, at the request of King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, had signed a resolution to keep December 5th as an annual non-working public holiday in Thailand in honour of his Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Recall that, last autumn following the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (2016-10-20), Thailand's Deputy Prime Minister, Wissanu Krea-ngam, had announced that the Thai government would soon change up to 4 of the annual non-working public holidays in Thailand, effective in 2017, and asked public and private organizations to wait for the upcoming announcement of changes to Thailand's public holidays, including previously announced 2017 public holidays in Thailand (2016-08-01), before producing any 2017 calendars.
