Jokowi declares 5-day weekend to get Indonesians spending

Most Indonesians will be recieving the opportunity to enjoy a five-day weekend in the ending of the month after the government declared extra holidays in a bid to give a rise to travel and consumption. President Joko Widodo declared next Wednesday and Friday as collective leave days around the Eid al-Adha holiday next Thursday, which is a wonderful effort of providing Indonesians an extended break from day to day hustle and boredom. The leave days are available to all civil servants, along with companies usually following suit by providing their employees time off. The stock exchange will be shut down on those days. The holiday break should be beneficial and be a reason of boost to the economy, surely in the areas and local tourism places, to get improvement.
