The dialogue seeks to align on shared policy priorities that will benefit Puerto Rico and support a comprehensive path for economic growth. U.S. Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Puerto Rico Economic Growth Coordinator Don Graves, Senior Advisor and Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs Julie Chávez Rodríguez, and other senior White House and administration officials will join Gov. Pedro Pierluisi Urrutia to forge a collaborative economic development framework for Puerto Rico featuring four key themes: human capital and workforce development, infrastructure and energy resilience, capital and investment strategy, and governance and data transparency.
