Puerto Rico has one of the most dynamic economies in the Caribbean region. Puerto Rico has very few natural
resources of economic value and its economy relies mainly on Federal Aid from
the United States Government, which depends on the industrialization programs
and the tax incentives that U.S.
offers. Important industries include pharmaceuticals, electronics, textiles,
petrochemicals, processed foods, clothing and textiles. Tourism has
traditionally been an important source of income for the island.
