Palmerston North, October 18th, 2019. - As part of the inauguration of the Latin American and Spain Film Festival (LASFF) in the city of Palmerston North, the exhibition of photographs “Cuba through Kiwi eyes ” was presented, in greeting to the twenty anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Cuba and New Zealand and the Day of Cuban Culture.
During the opening, the Chargé d'Affaires ai, Saimin Fis Abad emphasized the importance that Cuba attaches to ties with New Zealand, as an example, the relation between two small and distant nations, which have managed to maintain mutual attention, with practical results in bilateral cooperation and issues of mutual interest.
She also thanked the Palmerston North City Library and the School of Humanities at Massey University for hosting and coordinating this event, promoting greater links between Cuba and New Zealand.
This photo exhibition was exhibited in Wellington and Dunedin in March and July respectively, and is the result of the contest launched in November 2018 by the Cuban Embassy, through which the New Zealanders who had visited our country were summoned to send their contributions, receiving more than a thousand photographs, among which the best eighty were chosen.
