Bangladesh's Central Bank (Bangladesh Bank) has amended its previously-released list of official bank holidays in Bangladesh for the calendar year 2021, by also moving the upcoming Ashura bank holidays of Bangladesh from Thursday, August 19, to Friday, August 20, 2021.

The aforementioned announcement thus amends the list of official bank holidays in Bangladesh for 2021, which was released late last year (2020-11-15), and is in line with last week's announcement by the National Moon Sighting Committee of Bangladesh that the month of Muharram would begin on August 11, 2021 (2021-08-10).
