New Year holiday confirmed for UAE public and private sectors

Several celebrations have been planned across the country

The UAE has confirmed that Wednesday, January 1, will be a paid holiday for all workers in the country.

Public and private sector employees in the country will get one-day off to celebrate the New Year, according to the Federal Authority for Human Resources (FAHR).

Several celebrations have been planned across the country including fireworks at Burj Khalifa in Dubai to bring in 2020.

Earlier this year, the UAE cabinet announced that both public and private sectors in the country will have the same number of holidays.

That announcement in March followed the approval of a decree designed to bring equality to the public and private sectors, with the UAE government communications office saying on Twitter: “The decree aims at achieving a balance between the two sectors and supporting the national economy”.
