The Puerto Rico Products Association and the College of Architects and Landscape Architects have joined forces to exchange services in benefit of their respective members, stressing the economic importance of consuming products and using services that are “Made in Puerto Rico.”
With this partnership, both trade groups vow to promote local products and services among their members, and with the general public. Among the agreements are: establishing a presence of both groups on their web pages; sponsorship and promotion opportunities; sharing information with their databases; and, offering credit hours to licensed architects for attending Puerto Rico Products Association forums, among others.
“This is one of many agreements that we will work on this year to continue promoting what is ‘Made in Puerto Rico.’ Our interest is to continue offering our partners with alliances that benefit their services and products and result in future business,” said Ricardo Cardona, president of the Puerto Rico Products Association.
For her part, College of Architects and Landscape Architects President, Pilarín Ferrer, said: “This agreement is another opportunity to spread the word about what Puerto Rican architects and landscape architects do. It provides the general public another point of access to our professional directory, where anyone who is considering a project can do a quick search by region, specialty and experience.”
“Similarly, we will advertise through a link to the Puerto Rico Products Association website, the variety of products used in the construction industry, of proven quality, that is made in Puerto Rico. The goal for both institutions is that as far as possible, we generate support for our services or products,” she said.
