Fluor Corporation completed its infrastructure and plant upgrades for Debswana's  Jwaneng Cut-8 expansion project in Botswana. Fluor provided engineering, procurement and construction management services for the mine, which is the richest diamond mine by value in the world.

"Fluor has set the highest standard of performance commensurate with their world class position," said Balisi Bonyongo, the general manager of the Jwaneng mine.fluor

Gallup advised small businesses in the U.S. to prepare for a worst case scenario, i.e. recession, in 2013. The group warned that  the ''political economy,'' created by the upcoming November election cycle coupled with the so-called looming fiscal cliff, was likely to result in little if any government action to solve pressing financial problems, improve economic activity and/or keep consumer confidence from plunging.
