The President of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, has signed an extended version of the earlier decree "On the establishment of additional non-working days during the celebration of official dates and the transfer of days off in 2021", which further extends the list of 2021 public holidays in Uzbekistan.
Late last year (2020-12-03), after a period of public discussion (2020-10-19 and 2020-10-13), the Об установлении дополнительных нерабочих дней в период празднования официальных дат и переносе выходных дней в 2021 году had confirmed the October 2020 draft resolution of the same name, listing official public holidays in Uzbekistan for the upcoming calendar year 2021, and including 3 one-off non-working public holidays.
Today's extended decree similarly specifies that some Saturdays are to be non-working days for all workers ("суббота 2 января, суббота 20 марта, понедельник 22 марта и суббота 4 сентября 2021 года являются нерабочими днями для всех работников, независимо от вида рабочей недели"), and additionally declares 4 additional one-off public holidays in Uzbekistan in 2021.
The effect of the above is the creation of a 5-day period of consecutive public holidays in Uzbekistan from September 1 to 5, 2021.
