Economic Recovery Operation
The Economic Recovery Support Function works to identify unique competitive advantages to serve as catalysts to economic growth and resiliency around Puerto Rico in pursuit of the priorities defined by the Government of Puerto Rico following Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017. Puerto Rico possesses an abundance of resources, including three international airports, three commercial ports, an established pharmaceutical industry, 300 miles of open ocean coastline, fertile agricultural land, a bilingual workforce, and advantageous positioning between the continental U.S. and Africa, Central and South America, and the rest of the Caribbean.
This site hosts a curated collection of papers, research, and analytical tools created by the Economic Recovery Support Function in support of the Government of Puerto Rico’s economic and disaster recovery efforts following Hurricanes Irma and Maria to “…implement innovative solutions that can make Puerto Rico a showcase for the world with a modern and more resilient infrastructure, … and a more vibrant and competitive economy.”*
