Peru's Minister of Labour (Ministerio de Trabajo y Promoción del Empleo-MTPE), Daniel Maurate, has issued a communique squashing the social media rumours about the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Peru on October 1 and 2, 2015.
The persistent rumours on Peruvian social media came from people finding undated news reports of the declaration, a few years ago (2012-09-27, 2012-09-17, and 2012-09-14), of October 1 and 2, 2012, one-off public holidays on account of the ASPA Summit (Cumbre de Jefes de Estado y de Gobierno de América del Sur y Países Árabes).
Minister Maurate did, however, confirm that Friday, October 9, 2015, had been declared as a one-off public holiday(día no laborable) in the Peruvian capital, Lima, and the Province of Callao (where the Lima International Airport, and Peru's main harbor are), on account of the upcoming IMF and World Bank Summit ("la importancia del evento y añadió que se dio la norma ante la importancia del mismo, para tener la ciudad descongestionada de tránsito vehicular").
