Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Relationship with Puerto Rico
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is one of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks of the United States and is responsible for the Second District of the Federal Reserve System, which encompasses New York state, the 12 northern counties of New Jersey, Fairfield County in Connecticut, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The New York Fed is committed to the people of Puerto Rico and to the future growth and prosperity of the Commonwealth which is reflected in their ongoing work with many partners on the Island and in the research conducted by NY Fed economists, who monitor local economic conditions and analyze issues that affect the Island’s economy.
In July 2014, the New York Fed published a report titled, “An Update on the Competitiveness of Puerto Rico’s Economy” which highlight the key challenges and opportunities in raising economic growth in Puerto Rico. This was an update to a comprehensive 2012 study on the economic performance of Puerto Rico.
