Cambodia's Prime Minister, Hun Sen, and Deputy Prime Minister, Bin Chhin, have jointly signed and released Cambodian Royal Government's Sub-Decree No.19 modifying the previously-released list of 2018 public holidays in Cambobia, with the addition of a new annual non-working public holiday in Cambodia, the National Day of Remembrance, on May 20th.

The aforementioned sub-decree thus amends last autumn's (08-Dec-2017) Cambodian Royal Government's Sub-Decree 6081 on Employee's Public Holidays for 2018 establishing Cambodia's annual list of official non-working public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2018. Contrary to what was the case for the preceding 3 years (14-Nov-2016, 05-Oct-2015 and 15-Nov-2014), but as was previous custom (28-Oct-2013, 23-Oct-2012, 16-Oct-2011, 03-Sep-2010, 25-Aug-2009, 22-Sep-2008 and 03-Aug-2007), that decree did not explicitly specify that "Any public holiday, which falls on Sunday, worker shall be subjected to be one day carried forward to the next day", instead of "Saturday or Sunday", which is of interest, of course, as May 20th fall on a Sunday in 2018.

Previous additions to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Cambodia include the June 1st, "International and Cambodian Children's Day", and the new October 15 non-working public holiday, marking the death of the King Father (23-Oct-2012).
