HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is meeting with General Electric Co. officials to discuss how Connecticut can persuade the corporate giant to remain in the state.

Malloy told the Greenwich Retired Men’s Association Wednesday morning that a meeting is scheduled for Friday. Later in the day, the governor would not confirm the meeting, saying he did “not want to be pulled into a discussion about my calendar and my schedule in advance.”

Malloy would only say GE has been “true to its word,” by agreeing to have the discussions.

GE Chief Executive Jeff Immelt recently said the conglomerate will “always have a big presence in Connecticut,” though confirmed it’s still seeking a new headquarters site.

GE criticized recent state tax increases. Some were eventually scaled back, while other changes are being considered.
