The President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov signed the resolution "On Moving the Days Off in Connection with the Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Uzbekistan's Independence On September 1st" which declares Monday and Tuesday, August 29-30, 2011, as one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan.
A similar 2-day period of bridge public holidays was also declared by Uzbekistan's President last year (2010-08-18). However, the net result, this year, will be a 4-day period of public holiday as Wednesday, August 31, 2011, is this year's date for the annual Ramazan Hayit (End of Ramadan) public holiday in Uzbekistan, while Thursday, September 1, 2011, is the date of the "Independence Day" annual non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan.
