Cambodia's Prime Minister has signed a Cambodian Royal Government's Sub-Decree 478on Employee's Public Holidays for 2019 establishing Cambodia's annual list of official non-working public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2019.

Contrary to what was the case last year (08-Dec-2017), but not the preceding 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), the aforementioned decree specifies 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".

The aforementioned list of official public holidays for 2019 in Cambodia once again includes the June 1st, "International and Cambodian Children's Day", which was introduced a few years ago (03-Sep-2010), the May 20th public holiday introduced earlier this year (19-Feb-2018), and it maintains October 23 as a non-working public holiday in Cambodia to commemorate the Paris Peace Agreements of 1991, as well as the new October 15 non-working public holiday, added 5 years ago to mark the death of the King Father (23-Oct-2012).

The October 23 non-working public holiday in Cambodia had previously been canceled in the mid-2000's (15-Sep-2005) in order to promote January 7 as National Liberation Day, which marks the toppling of the Khmer Rouge in 1979.
