HARTFORD — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is traveling to Newfoundland and Labrador to attend the annual Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers.

Malloy was scheduled to participate Monday in sessions concerning energy matters. This year’s conference, which marks the 39th, is expected to focus specifically on regional energy issues, as well as innovations in the energy sector to address climate change.

Malloy was expected to return to Connecticut on Tuesday.

Recently named chairman of the New England Governors Association, Malloy will serve as co-chairman of the event with Paul Davis, the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The trans-border organization was created in 1973 in recognition of the bond that exists between the six New England states and the five Eastern Canadian provinces.
