National Day function, awards ceremony postponed

This year’s National Awards, previously scheduled to be presented to recipients during National Day Function, has been deferred to a later date. The announcement was made on Sunday following the President’s decision not to hold the annual National Day Functions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The President’s Office has also announced that the 2020 National Awards would be presented to recipients at a special function at a later date, and that the date will be contingent on the country’s developing situation with regard to COVID-19.
