Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister, Peter ONeill, has finally declared a one-day nationwide non-working public holiday, on November 16, 2018, were planned for November 2018.
A couple of months ago (17-Jun-2018), we had reported that the Port Moresby Chamber of Commerce was expecting the government of Papua New Guinea, to declare Friday, November 16, 2018, the day when most APEC leaders will be flying in, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Papua New Guinea, and last August (02-Aug-2018), Papua New Guinea's APEC Coordinating Authority chief executive, Chris Hawkins, had even gone as far as announcing that 2 non-working municipal public holidays were planned for November 2018 ("the two public holidays had been confirmed and awaiting the endorsement of Cabinet and Government House before they were gazetted").
Note that today's announced non-working public holiday, on November 16, 2018, is nationwide, and not limited to Port-Moresby, as had been heretofore surmised ("The "(national)" public holiday was endorsed by the National Executive Council to include everyone because it is unfair to have citizens outside the NCD working on the day while those in the capital city are allowed a day off").
The current list of official Papua New Guinea public holidays for the calendar year 2018 (11-Oct-2017) is contained in the "PNG National Gazette", which, as usual (24-Aug-2016, 01-Oct-2015, 18-Aug-2014, 07-Jan-2014, 25-Aug-2012, 07-Aug-2011, 26-Oct-2010, 08-Oct-2009, 13-Oct-2006, 07-Jul-2003 and 15-Aug-2000) announced day in lieu public holidays, if applicable.
