Puerto Rico tiene ante si, la mejor receta para lograr un crecimiento económico sostenible. Ese crecimiento será la base para posicionarnos más alto a la hora de evaluar nuestra competitividad con otras jurisdicciones del mundo.
Puerto Rico, like other U.S. jurisdictions, was included in the designation of Qualified Opportunity Zones (”QOZ”). Unlike the states, which could only designate 25 percent of their low-income areas as QOZ, Puerto Rico was able to designate 100 percent of its low-income areas. Thus, out of the nearly 8,700 QOZs, 863 are in Puerto Rico.
The primary purpose of the Opportunity Zones program is to attract investment to designated areas. Therefore, Qualified Opportunity Funds (”QOF”) must maintain at least 90% of the assets contributed by investors in qualified opportunity zone property (“QOZP”).
