Puerto Rico goes global. PUERTO RICO ICON is a business, finance and thought leadership forum showcasing Puerto Rico’s unique tax incentives, competitive advantages and investment opportunities. It’s also a platform to promote business collaboration and economic transformation within Latin America and beyond.
Our goal is to connect capital with development opportunities in the private and public sectors. Our platform brings together key industry stakeholders, creating a powerful economic driver for Puerto Rico’s transformation and fostering collaboration in the LATAM region.
As a U.S. territory with a strategic position in the Caribbean –and Spanish and English as its official languages– Puerto Rico serves as a major networking hub connecting the United States with Latin America and the rest of the world. Furthermore, Puerto Rico’s designation as an Opportunity Zone, combined with attractive local tax incentives, offers investors a unique investment opportunity.
