“The president of Peru, Ollanta Humala, is managing a successful story that goes beyond its own boarders and is enjoying well-deserved international recognition,” state news agency Andina reported Kim as saying.
Kim’s statement followed a meeting with Peru’s ambassador to the United States, Harold Forsyth.
Forsyth said that Peru has started organizing for the events. “Our country is implementing a series of actions to guarantee the success of the annual meeting of the IMG and [World Bank],” he said.
Peru’s economy grew by about 6.4 percent last year and is seen expanding about the same rate this year.
