One year after passage of the Puerto Rico Oversight Management and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA), Puerto Rico is actively working to restructure its debt. However, with much more to be done, many experts say fueling growth is crucial to promoting sustainable economic recovery on the Island. 

“When it comes to creating economic growth in Puerto Rico, we should leave no stone unturned,” said Velázquez. “Tuesday’s event will allow for a wide ranging discussion of diverse proposals to help overcome challenges Puerto Rico faces on the road back to prosperity.” The roundtable will feature a diverse array of Member of Congress as well as scholars and experts in relevant fields.  

Members of the media are strongly encouraged to attend.
