In an afternoon lunch session almost half of the audience had either been to PR or was doing business on the island. The message from the speakers was clear. The time is now. After almost a decade of crisis, consensus is clear, “the bottom has been hit”, and now the island is in a position to grow due to three key elements:
- The approval of the US Congress’ Fiscal Committee
- Ricardo Rosello’s local government’s clear and present focus on growing the economy
- Some very lucrative tax incentives like law 20/22 that has drawn over 1,000 investors
