  Myanmar has announced that Chinese New Year will be included as a public holiday in the 2025 calendar, the state-run media Myanmar Radio and Television (MRTV) reported on 8 July, 2024.

  Myanmar designated Chinese New Year as a public holiday in the calendar, in a similar move to other ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) member countries, in order to strengthen its "Paukphaw" (fraternal) friendship with China, the report said.

  The state government announces public holidays in the 2025 calendar in advance, which include religious days, and unique and historical days of the Southeast Asian country, the MRTV report said.
