2021 Growth Policy Summit

Governments all around the world are busily decoding the new realities brought by the post-pandemic world. New policy questions are being raised, public debates are being fostered, and high-level commissions are being established with the aim of exploring fresh alternatives and charting new pathways forward.

What about Puerto Rico? 

After decades of political mismanagement, natural disasters, and a prevailing each-for-oneself attitude, the island is perfectly poised to perform a once-in-a-lifetime reboot. The expected influx of federal monies, the impending reconstruction processes, and public policy projects in D.C. and locally, provide an incredible opportunity.


The moment is ripe for boldly reimagining a more prosperous, equitable, and sustainable future.


So, we daringly ask:

How do we get Puerto Rico back on a path towards growth?
How do we leverage the reconstruction process?
How have the bankruptcy process and the pandemic affected our ability to rebound?
How can we finally be successful in charting a new roadmap this time?

At this pivotal moment, these are the questions that CNE’s Growth Policy Summit 2021 will address.


The event will be held on

Friday, December 3, 2021
Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel
Convention District


CNE is closely monitoring the COVID pandemic and mindful of the rising health concerns. Though our expectation is to host the event in person, we are open to shifting to virtual sessions if the situation so requires.

As Puerto Rico’s Think Tank, the Center for a New Economy is helping chart the economic transformation of our island.
Join us and help build a new Puerto Rico!
