Puerto Rico may be set to turn its economy around and become the Singapore of the Caribbean.

That's what hedge fund manager John Paulson thinks, according to remarks Thursday reported by multiple media outlets.

"I think tomorrow the island will develop into the Singapore of the Caribbean." Paulson said, according to remarks reported by the Associated Press and FINalternatives.
