Taiwan Public Holidays 2002 (Source: TCO, Toronto)

    If you are planning for business travel to Taiwan in 2002, you should  
be aware of the Taiwan Public Holidays. (Besides having your  
business card translated to Chinese)  
    Jan  01 -- New Year's Day 
    Feb 11 -- Chinese New Year's Eve. 
    Feb 12 -- Chinese New year. 
    Feb 13 -- Second day of Chinese New Year. 
    Feb 14 -- Third day of Chinese New Year. 
 * Feb 28 -- Peace Memorial Day (DAY OFF because of weekend-shifting of Mar 02) 
 * Mar 02 -- They have to WORK on this Saturday (weekend-shifting for Feb 28) 
    Apr 05 -- Clear and Bright or Ching Ming Festival. 
    May 01 -- International Labor Day (only workers get the day off).

    Sep 03 -- Army Day (special procedure dept. of national defense) 
    Sep 21 -- Mid-Autumn Festival. 
    Oct 10 -- National Day. 
 * This seemingly bizarre arrangement was made because the government wants to 
    keep constant the numbers of holiday days from-year-to-year. 
    The following are not official public holidays, but companies CAN give 
their employees a day off at their discretion. Check with your host. 
    Mar 29 -- Youth Day.
