Argentina Decrees November 30 Public Sector Holiday

The government of Argentina's capital city, Buenos Aires, have issued a decree declaring Friday, November 30, 2018, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday within the Capital Territory, on account of the upcoming G20 summit.

Argentina's Executive has renewed pressure on Argentina's Lower House (Cámara de Diputados), to expedite a bill sent last summer, which would declare Friday, November 30, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina's capital, on account of the G20 summit being held in Buenos Aires' region.

The aforementioned decree seems to have been issued in frustration at the blockage of a similar bill ("proyecto de ley para que el día del comienzo de la cumbre, el viernes 30 de noviembre, sea designado feriado en la Ciudad por única vez, con el objetivo de facilitar la circulación por las calles porteñas, que se verán afectadas por la organización del evento"), which was was submitted this past summer (27-Jul-2018) by Argentina's Executive, to Argentina's Lower House, but which has since not moved noticeably (02-Oct-2018).

As the aforementioned decree only applies to the public sector, the government of Buenos Aires has re-issued a call for the companion bill to be passed to be able to generalize the November 30 public holiday ("el Gobierno porteño también invitó al Poder Legislativo y Judicial de la Ciudad y al sector privado, que desarrolla actividades industriales, comerciales, financieras y civiles generales, a adherir a la presente medida").
