The Ministry of Labour of the Dominican Republic has issued an official communiqué confirming that, as per the current legislation on public holidays in the Dominican Republic, the upcoming "Día del Patricio Juan Pablo Duarte" annual non-working public holiday in the Dominican Republic, would be moved, in 2018, from its traditional date of January 26, to Monday, January 29, 2018.

The aforementioned announcement ("el viernes 26 de enero Día de Juan Pablo Duarte, se trabaja y se cambia el feriado para el lunes 29 del mismo mes" that the upcoming, January 26, annual non-working public holiday in the Dominican Republic, would be moved from January 26, to Monday, January 29, 2018, is in line with last fall's official listing of public holidays in the Dominican Republic for the year 2018 (14-Nov-2017), and follows the 1997 "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes" (19-Jun-1997), as amended a few years ago (02-Dec-2014 and 27-Jul-2013) by a bill which was to remove the January 6 and 26 annual non-working public holidays in the Dominican Republic from the scope of the law 139-97 which regulates non-working public holidays in the Dominican Republic. But, that bill never made it to final ratification.
