The annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh, for the upcoming calendar year 2020, including ordinary public holidays in Bangladesh and Bangladesh public holidays under executive order, announced last month, had been gazetted.

Recall that, last month (2019-10-29), Cabinet Secretary, Mohammad Shafiul Alam, had announced that during the most recent Bangladesh Cabinet meeting, the annual list of public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year 2020, had been approved.

As usual, after this initial announcement, the public administration ministry issues a gazetted list of the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Bangladesh for the upcoming calendar year, as was done today (2016-12-03, 2014-11-03, 2013-11-15, 2012-11-30,...).

Today's gazetted list of 2020 public holidays in Bangladesh, as was the case for the past 3 years (2018-10-30, 2017-11-06 and 2016-11-25), but contrary to the preceding year (2015-10-02 and 2015-11-02), came with no public consultation, at around the same time as last year.
