Puerto Rico‎ Proposes Debt Plan

Jubilee USA

WASHINGTON - Puerto Rico's Government Development Bank is meeting with investors in New York to share new details around a bond exchange first proposed by the indebted island last year. The proposal is not being made public but sources say it will include a "superbond" that investors could purchase in exchange for existing debt. The plan takes into account that the US Territory's budget gap is $2 billion larger than expected. Puerto Rico owes $72 billion in total debt.
