The Indonesian government has set out the public holidays in 2017. In total, there will be 15 national holidays and four Cuti Bersama holidays. Of the 15 national holidays, three fall on weekends. Chinese New Year falls on a Saturday while New Year's Day and the first day of Hari Raya Puasa fall on Sundays.
The longest break will be for Hari Raya Puasa which will see Indonesians enjoying a six day break from Friday 23 June.
With the addition of the Cuti Bersama for Tuesday 26 December, Christmas will be a four day holiday.
This Joint Decree for the holidays was signed by Minister of Labour M Hanif Dhakiri, Minister for Religious Affairs Lukman Hakim Saifuddin and Minister of Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform Yuddy Chrisnandi. It was witnessed by the Coordinating Minister of Human Development and Culture (Coordinating PMK) Puan Maharani.
The setting of collective leave and national holidays in Indonesia is regulated in Government Regulation No. 24 of 1976, Presidential Decree No. 24 of 1976 and Presidential Decree No. 3 of 1983.
On the signing of the decree, Hanif Menaker remarked that the objective of collective leave and public holidays is aimed to improve efficiency and effectiveness in the utilization of working days, holidays and leave together.
"We hope that the establishment of a national holiday deal and leave together can improve labor productivity," said Hanif. In addition, it is hoped that the holidays will also provide a boost to the tourism sector.
