A small island sat in the north Caribbean Sea, Puerto Rico is an “unincorporated territory” of the United States, with little by way of natural resources that would be of any economic value. Its manufacturing industry is largely US-owned companies, specialising in pharmaceuticals, electronics, textiles, petrochemicals, processed foods, clothing and textiles, and its economy relies mainly on federal aid from the US government.

Puerto Rico’s trade and commerce continues to be subject to US congressional authority. Most of its imports are to the US, with small amounts going to the Netherlands, Dominican Republic and the UK – so there is a business opportunity there for UK companies.

That said, its ties to its former colonies mean it’s still a gateway to a market of 250 million people worldwide, mostly in the Portuguese speaking markets of Brazil, Angola and Mozambique.

Although there’s no time difference with the UK, the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, sits some 1,300 miles almost directly south of London and is around a two-and-a-half hour flight away – so a conference call is probably the most straightforward and certainly the most cost-effective way to stay in touch.
