On December 31 no one will work. This was a decision made by the Minister of Tourism Freddy Ehlers.
This action seeks to promote domestic tourism in the country, it also wants Ecuadorians to enjoy and explore different places of the country in the last 2010 holiday.
The holiday is obligatory and it is being considered to recover the work day on Saturday 8 of January.
The decree will be signed in the coming hours.
