Washington, D.C. – The National Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce (NPRChamber) was honored to take part in the 5th Puerto Rico Investment Summit, last month in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The summit is a private event that gathers investors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and developers to engage in a discussion about the advantages of doing business in Puerto Rico and its favorable investment climate.

The summit offered a comprehensive agenda covering the full gamut of economic incentives available for businesses considering a complete or partial relocation to the island, as well as for investors exploring the establishment of residency in Puerto Rico. It also included a very productive discussion with developers about real estate and infrastructure project opportunities available on the island, as well as informative presentations on the very current topics of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.

“It was rewarding to witness the level of interest and the sophistication of the attendees at the summit. By now the corporate tax incentives and other business advantages that Puerto Rico offers have been in place for a few years, and that enabled all stakeholders to have a very practical and hands on conversation about what those look like, the ins and outs of the process, and the effect they have had so far on Puerto Rico’s competitiveness”, said Jorge A. Salichs, senior advisor to the National Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber remains very committed to the economic development of Puerto Rico, and will continue to support those efforts in Puerto Rico and the mainland that help build and sustain a more robust economy in Puerto Rico.
