Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) now in Peru

The financial leaders and political heads of state of 21 pacific countries are in Peru now. This includes George W. Bush. To reduce the congestion and possibility of riots or strikes, the government has given all state employees, in Lima, vacation during the conference (Nov 20-23rd).

There are numerous articles about this event and how it has effected Peru on the Living in Peru site. Of course this event may have some effect on the US as well and you might want to search some US news sites for information about that. I know that Bush has planned to seek some support from the group to stimulate global economies and reduce the 'crisis'.
