Notes:

"As the second day of Lunar New Year in 2020 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year is designated as a general holiday in substitution. In addition, since Chung Yeung Festival in 2020 falls on a Sunday, the day following it is designated as a general holiday in substitution," said a Government spokesman.

 "As the third day of Lunar New Year in 2021 falls on a Sunday, the fourth day of Lunar New Year is designated as a general holiday in substitution. Besides, as Ching Ming Festival in 2021 falls on a Sunday, the following day will be designated as a general holiday in substitution.  However, as the day following Ching Ming Festival and Easter Monday fall on the same day, the next following day that is not itself a general holiday will be observed as an additional general holiday. With regard to the proposal for gradually increasing the number of statutory holidays, we need to make an objective assessment of the financial burden on employers brought by the proposal and its impact on the society and economy, etc.  After completing the analysis, we will submit it to the Labour Advisory Board for discussion this year." said a Government spokesman.
