Fifth edition of the Puerto Rico Investment Summit scheduled for March 2017
Published on January 6, 2017 Email To Friend    Print Version

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- The Puerto Rico Investment Summit (PRIS), the Caribbean’s premier investor’s conference, will celebrate its fifth edition on March 2 and 3, at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan. This summit is the most important conference to learn about Puerto Rico’s tax incentives program, the Island’s competitive advantages and new investment opportunities that the Island offers, now that it’s undergoing a great fiscal crisis.

Investors like 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. 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,” said Brenda González-Santini, president of the 2017 PRIS, “it is a must see conference for those interested in investment opportunities.”

In past editions, keynote speakers have included top executives, tax experts, institutional investors, investment bankers, private equity professionals, professionals who see Puerto Rico as a business destination, among others.

The summit provides a dynamic forum and the opportunity to establish important contacts both from Puerto Rico and abroad.

The Puerto Rico Investment Summit is a private event that provides a unique platform where investors, executives, government and private companies meet. Over 2,000 people have already attended prior events, featuring presentations by more than 100 public and private companies worldwide.
