China News: China's public holiday calendar for 2024 released
Employees can anticipate an extended Chinese New Year holiday of up to eight days. The State Council of the People's Republic of China has published the public holidays calendar for 2024.
During the Spring Festival, commonly known as Chinese New Year, and the National Day holiday, often referred to as 'Golden Week,' employees can enjoy extended breaks of eight days and seven days, respectively.
