Hoorah! Today is 'Peru Day' over at the NYSE, so if you haven't heard already here's the official EngLang blurb from Peru's state news agency, Andina:
"New York City, Mar. 11 (ANDINA). Government officials and business executives from Peru will gather Friday at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to participate in the first annual Peru Day. The event, hosted by the Peruvian Business Council and sponsored by BlackRock, Deutsche Bank, Financial Times and NYSE Euronext, will provide an opportunity for Peruvian officials and corporate leaders to share insight into Peru’s capital market, economic outlook, investment opportunities and business environment.
"Peru’s Minister of Economy and Finance, Ismael Benavides, will ring the NYSE Closing Bell on Friday to commemorate Peru Day..." CONTINUES HERE

However, IKN would also like to feature the following photo from Peru website PeruFail this morning that shows the real amount of planning and foresight that is used on a daily basis in the country:
