NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - The second annual Peru Day will be held on Friday, March 9 at the New York Stock Exchange with the participation of Senior Officials of the Peruvian Government, and leaders of the Peruvian private sector. The event is organized by the Peruvian Business Council, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting investments to Peru. The organization plays a vital role in showcasing Peruvian companies and forging closer ties with global investors and business leaders.

Leslie Wolf-Creutzfeldt, Managing Director of Grayling, a global PR firm, said, "After the success of Peru Day at the NYSE in 2011, onwards to Peru Day 2012 in a year which will see the continued rise of the Peruvian economy and increasing interest from abroad in investing in Peru. It was exciting to work with the Peruvian Business Council to organize a milestone event which exceeded our expectations in terms of attendance, media coverage and investment interest, and we expect an even greater result this year."

Peru is a leading investment option in Latin America with GDP growth over 7% in 2011, making it one of the most attractive in the region. Participants will gather with an illustrious group of investors and international intermediaries who will provide firsthand information about the excellent opportunities presented by Peru for foreign investment.
