PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo is making an official state government trip to New York.

The Democrat is scheduled to hold economic development meetings Friday before returning to Rhode Island.

A spokeswoman declined to specify what the meetings will be about.

Raimondo has made several out-of-state trips she describes as attempts to sell Rhode Island as a place for businesses to invest and expand.

She flew to San Francisco in May for a three-day trip to talk to Silicon Valley companies.

Her office says that unlike the California trip, her time in New York will not include any political fundraisers.
