One more country has opened a diplomatic mission in Papua New Guinea’s capital city Port Moresby, as Cuba recently opened an embassy in the Pacific country.

Papua New Guinea this week officially welcomed Cuba’s new ambassador Mr Jose Manuel Galego Montano.

Acting Governor General of Papua New Guinea Mr Thoedore Zurenuoc said his country is fully aware of Cuba’s continued efforts in providing medical aid to the Pacific and the government is keen to cooperate with Cuba in areas such as education, health, sports, technology, climate change and many more.

Ambassador Galego in his speech said Cuba was ready to work harder and contribute more towards our relationship so that both our countries can continue to prosper.

Rhode Island tourism video features Reykjavik, Iceland

Maybe the US state of Rhode Island should be called Rhode Iceland?

Rhode Island officials yanked a new tourism video, designed to draw visitors to the state, off YouTube in embarrassment on Tuesday after eagle-eyed viewers complained it showed a scene shot in Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, according to the Associated Press news agency / Ottawa Sun.

The state’s economic development agency, the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation, confirmed the goof and blamed an editing company.

The state released the video at a meeting on Monday night and posted it online Tuesday for a new campaign. The video’s intro features a skateboarder outside a glass building and has a narrator saying, “Imagine a place that feels like home but holds enough uniqueness that you’re never bored.

“People on social media said: Hey, that’s not Rhode Island — that’s the Harpa concert hall and conference centre in Reykjavik”.

Designer Greg Nemes visited Iceland in October and said he recognized the photogenic building, which has a steel framework and an exterior skin of differently colored glass panels.

“It was pretty unmistakable to me, so I did some digging around and posted on Facebook about it,” he said.

Social media users agreed with him, posting side-by-side photos of the building in the Rhode Island ad and Harpa.

Early Tuesday, the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation’s art director said he could “assure that all shots” were in Rhode Island.

But later Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the agency confirmed that the building in the state’s tourism ad is Harpa and said an editing company used the wrong footage.
