    Puerto Rico: Strategic Advantage for the USA Aerospace, Information Technology and Engineering Industry 

    Why are Microsoft, Pratt & Whitney, Lockheed Martin, Hamilton Sundstrand, Honeywell and Hewlett Packard growing their engineering, research, and shared services operations in Puerto Rico?
    Learn what these companies have discovered: Puerto Rico hosts two of the top twenty engineering programs in the United States; Puerto Ricans are US citizens and therefore can work on U.S.A. Federal/Defense contracts; In its 2008 Competitive Alternatives Study, KPMG ranked Puerto Rico as the most competitive business destination in the U.S.A.; Given Puerto Rico’s unique relationship with the U.S.A., income generated on the Island is not exposed to U.S. Federal Taxes.
    Come learn first hand why Puerto Rico is the perfect location for European firms interested in participating in the United States Federal and Defense contracting market. Government, academia and industry representatives will be available to discuss the compelling value proposition only Puerto Rico can deliver.
