Corona virus 2020: important announcement

After careful consideration the Executive Committee of British-Uzbek Society has decided to cancel the activities planned in March, April, and May. This decision follows the decision of the Embassy of Uzbekistan in London to cancel their annual Navruz party, and that of the British Embassy in Tashkent to postpone the UBTIC meeting scheduled to take place in London in May. When both the British and Uzbek governments have announced that participation at public events no longer involves any risk of passing on or contracting Corona virus we will resume our activities.
