The President of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov, has signed the resolution "On shifting day-off from Saturday, 5 March, to Monday, 7 March 2016" which declares Monday, March 7, 2016, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan, in connection with the celebration of the International Women's Day annual non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan to be observed on March 8, 2016.

As usual in such cases of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan (2015-11-21, 2015-08-27, 2012-03-20, 2011-12-27, 2011-08-25, 2011-03-01, 2009-11-25, 2008-12-25, 2007-12-25, 2006-05-01, 2005-12-28 and 2005-12-05), though not all (2014-12-26), the aforementioned non-working public holiday on Monday, March 7, 2016, is to be compensated by having Satuday, March 5, 2016, declared as a regular working day in Uzbekistan ("to create favorable conditions for the rest of the population and the rational use of working time").
