Burma (formerly Burma) Bank and Public Holidays News Update
Myanmar's Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security has published a further change to its previously published 2008 schedule of Myanmar's 2016 holidays, which corrects the date of the forthcoming full moon day of Waso (the beginning of Buddhist Lent).
Approximately a year ago (04-Apr-2015), the Myanmar Foreign Ministry published its 2008 schedule of Myanmar's next year' formal holidays, the main points of these year' s notices ((03-Nov-2014), 01-Nov-2013, 18-Dec-2012, 19-Oct-2011 and 21-Sep-2010) are the non-working full moon holidays, the prolongation or not the Burmese New Year holidays and the always strangely happening Kayin New Year holidays.
Since the Myanmar Calendar Advisory Board ruled that the year 1377 would be a big watt year (leap months and days ) in contrast to a small watt (only months) almost 2 years ago (03-Nov-2014), Myanmar's government has had difficulty getting back on course, with mistakes in the first announcements of the 2016 holidays in Myanmar (04-Apr-2015) and successive changes to the previously published 2016 holidays in Myanmar (13-Nov-2015).
