Its Official


I just saw it on the news, the official holidays have been moved from Thursday and Friday to Friday and Saturday.

Starting from September 1st 2007 the official weekend will be Friday Saturday.

That will change everythinga around, no more half days for a lot of companies but work will be longer during the weekdays. So instead of 8am-4pm it will be 8am-5pm.

This will have an interesting affect on a lot of business and I’m wondering how retail shops will react to this change in Kuwait. Now all the banking people have lost that Saturday holiday they hold so dear.
