Government announces 2025 public holidays, including Chinese New Year


The government of Myanmar typically announces essential religious and historical days, such as Myanmar New Year and Kayin New Year, as public holidays before the start of each calendar year.
The public holidays for the year 2025 were reportedly confirmed. Myanmar, being part of the international community, observes 1 January, International New Year Day, as a public holiday, similar to other countries worldwide. Additionally, the Chinese New Year has been designated as a public holiday in Myanmar, following the practice in other ASEAN countries and globally. This measure aims to enhance the friendly “Pauk Phaw” relationship with China. — MNA/TRKM
