PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - An entire three-hour economic summit called for by Gov.-elect Gina Raimondo will be open to the public after all.

Jonathan Duffy, a co-chairman of her transition team, said Tuesday that after speaking to Raimondo, the meeting scheduled for Dec. 16 to discuss ways to fix Rhode Island’s economy will be open to the media.

He said Monday that the meeting among 80 participants would be closed after Raimondo’s initial remarks.

The Providence Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1ByiID5 ) that the invited group is nearly all from the private sector and their areas of expertise are in manufacturing, work-force development, small-business and the tourism industry.
