PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The prime minister of Ireland has made a stop at the Rhode Island Irish Famine Memorial in Providence during a visit to the state.

Prime Minister Enda Kenny also spoke at an event Wednesday with Gov. Lincoln Chafee, the state’s congressional delegation and other officials to promote business ties between Ireland and the nation’s smallest state.

Chafee and Kenny said they hope to foster more economic and tourism opportunities.

Kenny was in New York earlier this week at the United Nations’ climate change summit.

The Democratic governor met with the prime minister in Ireland earlier this year as part of a trade mission.
