The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 551

The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation says:

  • 1st January – International New Year’s Day
  • 7th January – Victory Day over Genocide Regime
  • 8th March – International Women’s Day
  • 13th, 14th & 15th April – Cambodian New Year
  • 1st May – International Labor Day
  • 13th, 14th & 15th May – Royal Birthday of H.M Preach Bat Somdech Preach Baromneath Norodom Sihamoni, King of the Kingdom of Cambodia
  • 19th May – Visakh Bochea Day
  • 23rd May – Royal Ploughing Ceremony
  • 18th June – Royal Birthday of H.M Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk
  • 24th September – Constitution Day

  • 9th November – Independence Day
  • 11th, 12th, 13th November – Water Festival, Moon Festival
  • 10th December – International Human Rights Day

*Note: Any public holidays that fall on a Saturday or/and on a Sunday will be carried over to the next working day.

There are two additions necessary:

  1. Though this list is published about “public holidays [that] will be observed by the Cambodian public service” the same holidays are also observed by many non-government organizations, while the members of the general business community make their own choices.
  2. The Mirror is published within the activities of the Open Institute, following also the holiday arrangements as stated above.

As a consequence, we will have only new material on Tuesday, 11.3.2008.
