Puerto Rico

Prime Policy Group represents Puerto Rico’s Senate as it pushes for a broad range of economic development issues in Washington.

COVID-19 walloped the US Commonwealth’s economy in 2020 as it contracted by 4.4 percent, according to a report by Estudios Tecnicos, a consulting firm.

The island’s GDP is expected to slip 0.9 percent this year and grow by 1.5 percent in 2022 and 2 percent in 2023.

Estudios Technicos projects Puerto Rico’s modest economic growth prospects will spur an exodus from the island, reducing its population from 3.2M to 3M by 2025.

Prime Policy Group’s chairman Charlie Black, who has worked in the presidential campaigns of presidents Reagan, Bush I and Bush II, spearheads his firm’s Puerto Rico’s lobbying team, which includes managing director Paul Weiss, who was chief of staff to PR’s non-voting member of the US Congress and governor Anibal Acevedo-Vilao.

Prime Policy Group is part of BCW, a unit of WPP.
