UAE to shift to Saturday-Sunday weekend in line with global markets Updated: 2021-12-08 08:41:21 KST

The UAE will shift to a working week of four-and-a-half days with a Saturday-Sunday weekend to better align its economy with global markets.
The country currently has its weekend on Friday and Saturday.
However, from January 1st, the weekend will start on Friday afternoon, including for schools, so the weekend starts before Muslim prayers.
That said, private companies will be free to choose their own working week.
Over the past year, the UAE has been pushing to make its economy more attractive to foreign investment.
