Why Puerto Rico Now interview with Adam Greenfader of AG&T and Robbie Karver of PR Consultants. The interview was held in San Juan, Puerto Rico at the recent Investor Mastermind conference.
Together they discuss investment opportunities in Puerto Rico. In this interview, Adam and Robbie discuss why the island is ready for great growth. They also explain why the island’s economy may provide insulation from some of the global economic issues causing the recession. Below are some excerpts from the book. Coming soon and launching in September 2022.
In every crisis, there is an opportunity.
Today, we find ourselves recovering from a worldwide pandemic. Supply line challenges caused by COVID 19 has made the production, distribution, and storage of critical supplies a top national priority. Puerto Rico, with over 70 years of critical manufacturing experience, is in an ideal position to lead the fight against COVID 19 for the United States. In the midst of all these challenges, there are silver linings.
Today, Puerto Rico is about to receive the largest allocation of Federal relief funds in U.S. History.
In what is being called Operation Bootstrap 2.0., Puerto Rico will receive over 80 billion dollars. This includes money to construct homes, critical infrastructure, renewable energy, and other vital projects.
In addition to relief funds, Puerto Rico and the Internal Revenue Service have created a series of tax incentives. Their goal is to bring in new businesses and people to the island. Act 20/22 (now Act 60) had the unintended consequence of attracting a new breed of entrepreneurs – blockchain and crypto investors. Suddenly, Puerto Rico finds itself leading a technological revolution with thousands of people bringing new ideas, connections, and capital to the island.
