The government of the Ivory Coast, through its Ministère de l'Emploi, des Affaires Sociales et de la Solidarité Nationale, has announced that it had declared Thursday, October 29, 2020, as the date of the annual national non-working public holiday (jour férié et chômé sur toute l'étendue du territoire national) on account of the upcoming 2020 Mawlid (the Prophet's Birthday).

The aforementioned date of Thursday, October 29, 2020, as the date of the public holiday on account of the upcoming Prophet's Birthday public holiday of the Ivory Coast seems based on the Umm al-Qora Islamic calendar as used in Saudi Arabia, as in past years (2018-11-19, 2018-05-29, 2017-06-24, 2016-07-05, 2015-07-16 and 2014-07-27) albeit with some exceptions (2018-06-13 and 2018-06-12).
