NDO - State employees nationwide will get three days off for the occasion of the 74th anniversary of National Day (September 2, 1945 – 2019).

According to an announcement of the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, civil servants and officials will be granted three-day leave from Saturday, August 31, to Monday, September 2.

The ministry also took notice of agencies and units that do not have regular weekend breaks to arrange appropriate holidays based on their specific programmes and plans.
