The Cabinet also allowed the central bank and private firms to make a decision about whether to take an extra holiday or business as usual.
In a report from The Nation, the central bank announced on Monday that it had decided that April 12 won’t be a bank holiday and that it would remain a standard workday for banks and financial institutions, so as to avoid disruption of financial transactions caused by a long holiday, and to avoid possible effects on the economy.
The report added that the Stock Exchange of Thailand has also announced that the SET would remain open on April 12.
