Substitute holidays set for August

Va Sonyka / Khmer Times Share:

Lieu days for the postponed Khmer New Year holidays will be set from August 17 to 21, a government sub-decree obtained by Khmer Times today revealed.

The decision comes after Prime Minister Hun Sen earlier this week ordered the Cabinet to convene and decide a date for the substitute holidays.

In a voice message sent to the Cabinet, Mr Hun Sen said the government must compensate the public as promised as the COVID-19 situation in the Kingdom is under control.

By tradition, the Khmer New Year holidays take place in April, allowing the public a brief respite from work and giving them a chance to travel to their home provinces to celebrate.

However, this year’s festivities were postponed with the onslaught of the pandemic.
