ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York state is opening a trade and tourism office in Puerto Rico.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that the new office will promote “mutually beneficial” tourism opportunities and economic ties. It will also boast a shop selling New York products.
The Democratic governor joined Puerto Rico gov. Alejandro Garcia Padilla to announce the grand opening of the office. Cuomo was in Puerto Rico on Thursday to attend the Somos El Futuro conference, an annual gathering of state leaders that focuses on issues facing New York’s Latino residents.
New York has more Puerto Rican people than anywhere outside of Puerto Rico, and Cuomo says the two places have long had a “special” relationship. He has pledged the state’s help to Puerto Rico as it deals with a fiscal crisis.
