Puerto Rico to Hold Major Investment Forum

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 10, 2017

Puerto Rico is holding its first-ever Invest Puerto Rico Forum next month, Governor Ricardo Rossello announced this week.

The forum will take place Sept. 20-21 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center, gathering more than 500 investors and entrepreneurs with an interest in exploring business opportunities on the island.

“We have established an economic development model based on the economy of knowledge and innovation, focused on the emerging industries of research and development, technology and exportation services, while looking to position Puerto Rico as a center for innovation and investment, and continuing to insert ourselves in the global economy,” Rossello said in a statement. “All of this, combined with a solid incentives offer, allows the Island to compete with the largest global economies. The 1st Invest Puerto Rico Forum will serve as a platform to maximize these advantages for the benefit of our economy”, expressed the chief executive.”

The forum will see government officials and private sector leaders presenting what they see as Puerto Rico’s competitive advantages, from tax incentives to tourism.

“Without a doubt, all these elements make the Island the ideal place for the development of emerging industries, and with this forum we invite the world to learn about the opportunities we offer, because Puerto Rico is open for business,” said Manuel A. Laboy, secretary of Puerto Rico’s Department of Economic Development and Commerce.
