5th edition of Puerto Rico Investment Summit scheduled for March
SAN JUAN – The Puerto Rico Investment Summit will hold its fifth edition March 2 and 3 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan. The summit is a venue where attendees learn about Puerto Rico’s tax incentives program, the island’s competitive advantages and new investment opportunities.
In a press release, organizers say investors such as “John Paulson and Nicholas Prouty have identified Puerto Rico as a key place to do business, and are in the process of construction of extraordinary real estate projects in the Island,” adding that international companies such as Lufthansa, Honeywell, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard “have also identified the opportunities to do business in the Island, and have moved operations to Puerto Rico.”
“This Summit provides the information that investors and business people are looking for in Puerto Rico. There is a lot said about the fiscal crisis, but there’s a great story of opportunity here because of our tax incentives, costs, human resources and privileged location,” Brenda González-Santini, president of the 2017 investment summit, says in the release.
In past editions, keynote speakers have included top executives, tax experts, institutional investors, investment bankers, private equity professionals and professionals interested in Puerto Rico as a business destination.
The private event where investors, executives, government and private companies meet has been attended in its previous iterations by more than 2,000, and has featured presentations by more than 100 public and private companies worldwide, according to the conference’s organizers.
