Peru's Minister of Labour (Ministerio de Trabajo y Promoción del Empleo-MTPE), Daniel Maurate, has issued a communique ruling-out the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Peru on Monday, July 27, 2015, to link the annual July 28-29 "Fiestas Patrias" with the preceding weekend ("No va a ser feriado largo este 27 de julio").

Late last year (2014-12-14), the Government of Peru issued the "Decreto Supremo DS N° 073-2014-PCM" which declared Friday, January 2, 2015, as a one-off nationwide non-working public holiday in Peru ("Se declara no laborable a nivel nacional el 2 de enero 2015 para trabajadores del sector público y privado"), less than a week after it had released (2014-12-09) its annual list of the official non-working public holidays for both the private and public sectors of Peru for the upcoming calendar year 2015, which, for the second year (2014-03-31), contrary to was done in past years (2013-01-01, 2011-12-29, 2011-03-06, 2010-02-17, 2008-12-15, 2008-02-08 and 2006-09-15), did not declare additional non-working public holidays in Peru in 2015 to stimulate internal tourism ("con el fin de fomentar el desarrollo del turismo interno y dinamizar las economías locales").
