A Puerto Rico official defended the commonwealth’s financial transparency practices after a negative news report in which the Wall Street Journal highlighted a late-March meeting Puerto Rico held in New York with selected investors. The press was barred.

“The commonwealth and GDB are committed to providing investors with timely and accurate access to information,” the interim president of the Government Development Bank of Puerto Rico, José Pagán, said in a statement. “To that end, information made available at the March 22 investor meeting was subsequently posted on the GDB website less than one business day after the meeting took place.”
