The President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov signed the resolution "On Moving the Days Off in Connection with the Celebration of the 19th Anniversary of the Country's Independence On September 1st" which declares Monday and Tuesday, August 30-31, 2010, as one -off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan.

As usual in such cases of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan (2009-11-25, 2008-12-25, 2007-12-25, 2006-05-01, 2005-12-28 and 2005-12-05), the aforementioned non-working public holiday is to be compensated by having Satuday and Sunday, August 28 and 29, 2010, declared a regular working day in Uzbekistan.

The net result will be a 3-day holiday as Wednesday, September 1, 2010, is already the date of the "Independence Day" annual non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan.
