Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth of the United States. Puerto Ricans were granted US citizenship in 1917. In 1952, a constitution was enacted providing for internal self-government.
Puerto Rico has one of the most dynamic economies in the Caribbean region. A diverse industrial sector has far surpassed agriculture as the primary locus of economic activity and income. Encouraged by duty-free access to the United States and by tax incentives, US firms have invested heavily in Puerto Rico since the 1950s. Tourism has traditionally been an important source of income, with estimated arrivals of more than 5.2 million tourists in 2017.
