The Economic Development Bank for Puerto Rico (BDE by its Spanish initials) on Wednesday announced a new alliance with the Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce of Central Florida (PRCCCF) with the main objective of forming a strategic collaboration to provide comprehensive support to Puerto Rican companies from Central Florida interested in establishing themselves in Puerto Rico, providing financial alternatives to small and midsize entrepreneurs who wish to expand their businesses on the island.


“Through this alliance with the PRCCCF, the Bank will offer financing services of up to $1 million to the companies referred by this Chamber of Commerce,” BDE President Luis Alemañy González said in a written statement.


The PRCCCF, recognized for its work in promoting the economic and business development of the Puerto Rican diaspora in Central Florida, will be in charge of identifying and referring companies interested in establishing themselves in Puerto Rico.


“This alliance represents a unique opportunity to promote business activity and economic development in Puerto Rico, while strengthening ties between the Puerto Rican diaspora and the island,” Alemañy González said. “The BDE and the PRCCCF are committed to working hand in hand to provide the necessary support to entrepreneurs who wish to contribute to the growth and prosperity of Puerto Rico.”


PRCCCF President Jorge Figueroa Ortiz added that with the alliance “we seek to maintain and improve a strong socially responsible business climate based on the principles of free enterprise and fair profit in our communities.”


“We are committed to advancing existing businesses and attracting new economic opportunities in Puerto Rico as well as Central Florida,” he said.
