Uzbekistan Declares March 7 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Tuesday, March 1, 2011)

Source: Uzbek National News Agency (Tashkent)

The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov, has signed the Resolution "On shifting day-off from Saturday, March 5, 2011, onto Monday, March 7, 2011", which declares Monday, March 7, 2011, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan.

As usual in such cases of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan (18-Aug-2010, 25-Nov-2009, 25-Dec-2008, 25-Dec-2007, 01-May-2006, 28-Dec-2005 and 05-Dec-2005), the aforementioned non-working public holiday is to be compensated by having Satuday, March 5, 2011, declared a regular working day in Uzbekistan.

The net result will be a 3-day holiday as Tuesday, March 8, 2011, is already the date of the "International Women's Day" annual non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan.

Note that most of the media reports available in English incorrectly translated the aforementioned press release as "Uzbek President Islam Karimov signed a decree declaring from March 5 to March 7 as days-off", leading one to believe that the declared holidays are from March 5 to 7, and that March 8 is a regular working day. However, the correct wording would be that "Uzbek President Islam Karimov signed a decree moving the day off from March 5 to March 7".
