ABSTRACT
The article provides an outlook for the economy of Puerto Rico. It examines the public-private partnerships (PPPs) programme in relation to its role in the fiscal and economic reconstruction plan to lift the economy out of a recession. The expected benefits of this effort include the infrastructure deals in emerging markets, the loss of tax incentives from U.S. firms, and the continuing unemployment. Also mentioned are the goals of PPPs to open avenues for foreign investment into the country and to counteract concerns over creditworthiness.
