On the occasion of the 450th anniversary of the city of Fredrikstad, officials of the Cuban Ministry of Culture in the eastern city of Bayamo were invited by their Norwegian counterparts to explore possible cultural exchanges and cooperation. In that friendly spirit, the Cuban Ambassador to Norway was invited on November 15 to participate in the opening of the city´s “Kultur Nacht”. The Mayor of Fredrikstad and other local authorities offered their guests a typical welcome lunch. In the afternoon the visitors met with a group of small local entrepreneurs in the field of high-tech communications who are keen on linking-up with the Bayamo cultural project. Later on, at the inauguration of the Kultur Nacht, the Mayor invited Ambassador de los Reyes to address the young public. The Cuban diplomat highlighted the historical relevance of Bayamo and the importance of cultural links to bring our peoples closer together.
