Positive Outcomes for the Island’s Agricultural Biotechnology Sector

April 19, 2018

The first study on the economic impact of the agricultural biotechnology industry in Puerto Rico was conducted by Estudios Técnicos Inc., the main firm on planning, economic assessment and market strategies in Puerto Rico. The agricultural biotechnology industry is an important source of employment and economic activity that significantly contributes to the development of the Island. 

 

Among the report’s key findings, the companies that make up part of the biotechnical agricultural industry in Puerto Rico generate – for each dollar invested in the industry through incentives and tax credits – a return on investment of $5.36 for the local economy. Also, they contribute $80 million annually to the local economy and incur in nearly $130 million in expenses on the island.
