The Peruvian government of Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has released the Decreto Supremo Nº 021-2017-TR which amends and expands the list of the official non-working public holidays in Peru for the upcoming calendar year 2018 ("Declaran días no laborables compensables para los trabajadores del Sector Público, durante el Año 2018").
As was done regularly in the past (2017-01-07, 2016-12-22, 2013-01-01, 2011-12-29, 2011-03-06, 2010-02-17, 2008-12-15, 2008-02-08 and 2006-09-15), after a 3 years hiatus (2015-12-31, 2014-12-09 and 2014-03-31), the Government of Peru has again issued a Decreto Supremo which declares 4 additional non-working public holidays in Peru for 2018 to stimulate internal tourism (con el fin de fomentar el desarrollo del turismo interno y dinamizar las economías locales), although the first of these 4 additional public holidays, had already been declared as part of the Decreto Supremo 001-2017-PCM which declared 3 additional non-working public holidays in Peru for 2017 to stimulate internal tourism (2017-01-07).
Even during the years when the declarations of one-off non-working public holidays in Peru, to stimulate internal tourism, was abandoned, some isolated one-off public holidays in Peru did get declared (2016-08-13, 2015-09-12, 2015-07-23 and 2014-12-14).
