NEWS
ABOUT PUERTORICOSIGUE.ORG

In January 2020 Puerto Rico experienced a series of earthquakes which had a devastating impact on the southwestern part of the Island. As its people and business community strive for normalcy, Invest Puerto Rico, the Island’s economic development organization, has been working closely with partners island-wide to provide support to affected businesses, providing timely information on what’s happening on the ground, and ciphering through the noise to continue to deliver economic results for Puerto Rico.

In line with InvestPR’s mission to attract investment and new business to the Island, assessing successes and challenges for business continuity after disasters is key to building competitiveness. Out of this axiom, #PuertoRicoSigue was born.

#PuertoRicoSigue is a one-stop-shop for business recovery resources. We have indexed organizations and initiatives that are active in providing disaster-relief support throughout the Island so we can get our people back in business.

Puerto Ricans have proven their determination to overcome challenges and this will not be the exception. As one, we help each other; as one, we grow. Onward, Puerto Rico.

Siempre juntos adelante (Always moving forward together),
