The recently-announced draft resolution "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and the transfer of days off in 2021" (Об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2021 году), listing official public holidays in Uzbekistan for the upcoming calendar year 2021, has been published for public discussion.

Today's published decree "Ўзбекистон Республикаси Президенти Фармони 2021 Йилда Расмий Саналарни Нишонлаш Даврида Қўшимча Ишланмайдиган Кунларни Белгилаш Ва Дам Олиш Кунларини Кўчириш Тўғрисида", signed by the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, contains the same elements as the one announced, earlier this month (2020-10-13).

Namely it declares 3 one-off non-working public holidays in 2021 in Uzbekistan, in September, and may yet be amended on the occasion of Muslim public holidays, as was the case in the past (2019-08-18 and 2019-05-29), as well as specifying that some Saturdays are to be non-working days for all workers ("2021 йил 2 январь- шанба, 4 сентябрь - шамба ва 22 март- душанба кунлари барча ходимлар учун иш ҳафтасининг туридан қатъи назар, дам олиш куни ҳисобланади").

For the past 3 years (2019-11-15, 2018-11-14 and 2017-12-28), the annual announcements of public holidays, as well as bridge public holidays in Uzbekistan, have been made before the beginning of the upcoming calendar years, as opposed to preceding years, when the announcements of one-off public holidays in Uzbekistan was made on a case-by-case basis (2017-08-24, 2017-06-24, 2017-05-02, 2017-03-16, 2016-12-29, 2016-08-26, 2016-02-12,...).

The draft decree is now open for discussions until October 28, 2020.
