Washington, D.C.The National Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce (NPRChamber) was honored to take part in the 2018 Las Vegas EB-5 & Global Investment Immigration Convention, last month in Las Vegas, NV.

The convention, attended by a distinguished group of international migration agents, project developers, USCIS approved regional centers, attorneys and other industry professionals, is the largest EB-5 and citizenship-by-investment event in the United States. The EB-5 visa program is an important part of the United States’ immigration system, which has consistently contributed to the nation’s economic growth, created jobs for U.S. workers, and stimulated local economies through new capital investment.

“At the NPRChamber, we recognize the need to insert ourselves in the discussion of every viable tool for Puerto Rico’s economic development. To that end, we purposely engaged global investors and other prominent industry professionals about the exciting growth opportunities Puerto Rico offers. EB-5 represents an attractive option for sustainable infrastructure financing and new capital infusion to the island, at a time when some of the traditional financing vehicles are significantly limited or inaccessible,” said Jorge Salichs, senior advisor of the National Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce.
