The Caribbean will continue to present profitable investment opportunities for multinationals in 2018 and 2019, largely through higher economic activity driven by strengthening performance of the US economy (which drives both tourism flows and remittances to the region, while pulling in a significant portion of Caribbean exports).
Nonetheless, key questions exist around the timing and magnitude of economic recovery in markets such as Puerto Rico and Dominica following the hurricanes that battered parts of the Caribbean in late 2017. In addition, the US tax bill lowering US corporate tax rates threatens to pull back investment from the subregion and even potentially drive some local companies to reconsider their country of domicile for tax purposes. Either impact would raise questions regarding the bill’s short- and long-term consequences on these markets.
