Small businesses in Puerto Rico represent a significant portion of the local economy. In 2013 the New York Fed co-sponsored, along with the FDIC and the U.S. Virgin Islands/Puerto Rico District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration, a series of forums designed to expand opportunities for small businesses in Puerto Rico. The three forums focused on access to financing, government procurement contracts, and international trade. Presentations from the series are available, along with a Report on the Competitiveness of Puerto Rico's Economy.
