Uruguay Eliminates Daylight Saving Time


The Uruguayan Chamber of Tourism announced Monday that the president has signed a decree to cancel daylight saving time, citing negative impact on the tourism sector as one of the main reasons for the policy change.

DST has been observed in Uruguay since 2004. The cancellation comes 97 days before the next DST period was scheduled to start, on 4 October 2015. The time in Uruguay is 3 hours behind UTC.
