At the New York Stock Exchange in Wall Street, he will meet the investors community before his next appointment at the Opening Bell followed by a visit at the trading floor. Mr. Letta will then conclude his “tour” at the United Nations General Assembly where Italy’s Prime Minister is expected to deliver a speech about other International issues.
