NEW YORK — British Prime Minister David Cameron is finishing his official trip to the United States with a visit to the New York City area that includes a meeting at the New York Stock Exchange and a conversation with students at New York University.

A day after his joint appearance with President Barack Obama, in which the two men discussed the war in Afghanistan, Cameron will also make a sojourn to the World Trade Center site and the memorial for the lives lost in the terrorist attack that led to that war.

Cameron is scheduled to arrive in the city from Washington around 10 a.m. Thursday. His first stop will be across the Hudson River, in New Jersey’s largest city.

Cameron is expected to meet with Newark Mayor Cory Booker to hear about some of the city’s programs for education, economic development and child and family support that could be replicated in Great Britain.

After that visit, his schedule takes him to the World Trade Center site and the Sept. 11 memorial.

In the afternoon, Cameron is slated to meet with students in a question-and-answer session at New York University. His flight back to England is late Thursday night.

Cameron arrived in the U.S. on Tuesday. His trip included a college basketball game with Obama as well as a state dinner at the White House.
