Cabinet to consider declaring Dec 11 a public holiday


The Deputy Prime Minister is preparing to submit a proposal to the Cabinet calling for December 11, the date of BIKE FOR DAD, to be a public holiday.

Deputy Prime Minister General Tanasak Patimapragorn reiterated that the government has not yet announced December 11 to be a public holiday. On December 11, the Kingdom of Thailand, as well as Thais living abroad, will celebrate His Majesty the King’s 88th birthday anniversary with the cycling event, BIKE FOR DAD.

Related agencies from the public and private sector have said that if December 11 is declared a public holiday, then it will ease the administration of the activity. However, all parties have reported readiness and have focused on the safety and convenience of participants.
