Puerto Rico Vehicles sales in 2015 Toyota-Tacoma_2016

Puerto Rico Vehicles sales in 2015 fell down for the second year in a row, hit by persistent recession and high unemployment rate. Toyota was market leader followed by Koreans Hyundai and Kia.

Country Outlook

The Congress announced that a plan to assist Puerto Rico through its long-lasting debt crisis that topped off two years of recession should be announced by the end of March. Most of the debate surrounds debt restructuring schemes and whether or not Puerto Rico can declare bankruptcy.

Negotiations have intensified between stakeholders lately as a USD 2 billion payment scheduled for 1 July is highly regarded as the next major deadline.

Several administrative officials have warned about the risk of a major humanitarian crisis if Congress does not address Puerto Rico’s situation quickly, as financing of the Medicaid health care system, which covers 1.6 million people, is under threat.
