The Council of Ministers has decided to change the regulations regarding working hours in the public service sector.

Accordingly, public sector working hours will be: Monday – Thursday (08.00-17.00) and Friday from (08.00-16.00) with a one hour lunch break between 12.30-13.30pm. The change of working hours will cover the period between 16th February and 15th June.

This is the first of a series of actions to be taken by the coalition government to implement Turkey’s structural reform package for 2016-2018. In doing so, the TRNC will receive a reform payment fund worth 540 million TL.

Further goals will be the privatisation of its ports, electricity and communications authorities, the reduction of the number of municipalities, and the transfer of electricity from Turkey to the TRNC via undersea cable.
