To promote investment in the hospitality sector, the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino and its owner Jun Zhang, invited thirty investors from China to explore the economic development opportunities and incentives of the Puerto Rico Tourism Sector.

Zhang and several of his Board Members were received at Fortaleza by the Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Fiscal Agency and Financial Advisory Authority, Gerardo Portela Franco, and later all participated in the Puerto Rico Hospitality & Tourism Industry: Investment Opportunities & Incentives Presentation, held at the resort.

During the presentation the Director of Planning and Development of the Tourism Company of Puerto Rico (PRTC), attorney Carlos Romo, spoke about the opportunities available in the hotel industry; the Director of Relations of Discover Puerto Rico, attorney Karen Mojica, discussed marketing strategies and evidenced how Puerto Rico has positioned itself as a destination; and the director of Business Development of the Industrial Development Company (PRIDCO), Victor Merced, detailed the incentives available for these purposes.

Based on his experience as a Marriott property owner, Zhang urged potential stakeholders to invest in the island and took the opportunity to thank the Puerto Rico’s government and the hotel management team for their efforts to keep the property operating after Hurricane María.
