THE ALL-STAR ISLAND
What does Puerto Rico produce that makes it famous and competitive on a global scale and that is also an intrinsic truth about the country?
PUERTO RICO PRODUCES MORE WORLD-CLASS TALENT PER SQUARE MILE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH.
Through its countless stars, Puerto Rico has shined, and continues to shine, more than any other country with a comparable area and population density. This makes us the world’s most efficient factory of talent, the most valuable resource a nation can have.
But talent alone does not make us The All-Star Island. Thanks to an innovative series of incentives and reforms, Puerto Rico also glows in every aspect that promotes economic development.
It won’t take you long to figure out why Puerto Rico is a stellar location for tourism, investment, and good business.
World-Class Human Capital
Puerto Rico’s most attractive offering is its people. A highly skilled bilingual workforce functions productively within a Puerto Rico’s Business Star Proposition and makes us a premier location for business and investment:
- First-rate workforce
- Global experience
- Advanced infrastructure
- Attractive tax incentives
- United States legal framework
The entrepreneurial spirit of this workforce is what drives the economy of Puerto Rico. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) account for 60% of all jobs and 85% of all companies. The people behind these enterprises are a key part of our plan for economic development that fosters the creation of a diverse and well-connected business ecosystem.
Vieques houses the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay, one of three in Puerto Rico and five in the entire world. Old San Juan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. El Yunque is the only rainforest in the United States Forest System. The beaches of Culebra are repeatedly mentioned among the most beautiful in the world by Travel Channel.
These are only some of Puerto Rico’s all-star lineup of world-class attractions. All of them together make us shine like no other destination in the region.
