The Albanian Minister of Interior, Bledi Çuçi, has called on the banking sector and the private sector to also declare Wednesday, May 25, 2022, as a day off.

As per the aforementioned statement, "I call on all businesses that have nothing to do with the final, not bars, restaurants, or services, but others like banks or various private institutions, that, as we have done with public institutions or schools, they should declare Wednesday a day off, because the traffic will be paralyzed throughout Tirana".

Recall that, last week, the Albanian government declared a public holiday for public institutions and schools in the Albanian capital, Tirana, on Wednesday, May 25, 2022, when Tirana hosts the Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord.

In response to last week's governmental decision and today's call from Minister Çuçi, the Bank of Albania announced that "Pursuant to the decision approved by the Council of Ministers, dated 18.05.2022, On the appointment of Wednesday 25.05.2022, as a day off”, the Bank of Albania’s headquarters in Tirana will be closed on Wednesday".

The initial list of 2022 Albanian bank holidays and public holidays was released last autumn (2021-11-01), and later updated twice (2022-02-03 and 2022-03-18).
