Bangladesh's Cabinet Secretary, Mohammad Shafiul Alam, has announced that, at yesterday's Cabinet meeting, chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2019, was approved, including ordinary public holidays in Bangladesh and Bangladesh public holidays under executive order.

As was the case for the past 2 years (2017-11-06 and 2016-11-25), but contrary to the preceding year (2015-10-02), when a draft of the list of proposed Bangladesh 2016 public holidays had been circulated a month before the official announcement of the list of the Bangladesh 2016 public holidays (2015-11-02), this year's official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2019, came with no public consultation, though earlier than last year.

After today's cabinet approval, the public administration ministry will issue a gazetted list of the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2019, as per custom (2016-12-03, 2014-11-03, 2013-11-15, 2012-11-30,...).
