Uzbekistan Purges Public Holidays Legislation

The President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, has signed a decree ("О мерах по улучшению деловой среды в стране путем внедрения системы пересмотра утративших свою актуальность актов законодательства") which set as no longer valid any past legislation declaring one-off public holidays, as well as making self-expiring the annual declaration of additional non-working days transferred days off.

In the past, the government of Uzbekistan regularly declared one-off non-working public holidays (2017-05-02, 2017-03-16, 2016-08-26, 2016-02-12, 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).

But, since 2018, these transferred days off are now announced in advance near the beginning of the year (2019-11-15, ) in a presidential decree such as the decree "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and the postponement of holidays in 2020" ("Об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2020 году"), which listed all official public holidays in Uzbekistan for the calendar year 2020, and which was released late last year by the President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev (2019-11-15).
