After a few weeks of contradictory remarks by various Cambodian ministries, stating, then infirming, that the government of Cambodia was about to slash the number of annual non-working public holidays in Cambodia, by seven days, Prime Minister Hun Sen has finally confirmed that public holidays in Cambodia could be reduced in revisions made to the working calendar as a part of huge reforms to be announced at the end of next week.

Last week (2019-03-15), we had reported that the preceding week, various Cambodian ministries had stated that the government of Cambodia was about to slash the number of annual non-working public holidays in Cambodia, by seven days.

Currently, the 2019 public holidays in Cambodia (2019-01-02 and 2018-11-26) are augmented by one annual public holiday, following last year's Cambodian Royal Government's Sub-Decree No.19 (2018-02-19) declaring a new annual non-working public holiday in Cambodia, the National Day of Remembrance, on May 20th.
