On August 31, 1991, Uzbekistan declared its independence by the initiative of President Islam Karimov. The same day, at the extraordinary session of the Supreme Soviet of the Uzbek SSR, a resolution "On declaring independence of the Republic of Uzbekistan" and a law "On the Fundamentals of Independence of the Republic of Uzbekistan" were adopted. Following this decree the Uzbek SSR was renamed to the Republic of Uzbekistan. The decision to declare September 1 as the Independence Day was also adopted on the same day.

Uzbekistan has welcomed 27 years of independence with full success. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, speaking at a solemn ceremony at the Palace of International Forums in Tashkent, said that the well-being of people improved in recent years. This year the real income of Uzbek people has grown by 12%.
