President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday declared as special working days some holidays that he earlier pronounced as non-working special days for 2021.

Duterte, through Proclamation No. 1107, amended the declared holidays for this year, citing the need to minimize work disruption after the COVID-19 pandemic bruised the economy.


"For the country to recover from the adverse economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a need to encourage productivity by, among others, minimizing work disruption and commemorating some special holidays as special (working) days instead," the President said in his proclamation signed Friday.

The following are declared as special working days this year: 

  • All Souls Day- November 2
  • Christmas Eve- December 24
  • New Year's Eve- December 31
