In an update to our article of 14 October 2016, the Romanian Parliament has decided to introduce only one new additional public holiday (on top of the new 24 January public holiday introduced for the first time in 2017). This additional public holiday day will be on 1 June and will take effect in 2017. The proposal to also make 23 April a public holiday is not being progressed. Romania now has a total of 14 public holidays per year.
