The Washington European Society is organizing an event on June 25 (5pm-8pm) at the Embassy of Georgia with the Georgian Ambassador David Bakradze.
Georgia – With its “green valleys spread with vineyards, old churches and watch towers perched in fantastic mountain scenery”- is allegedly not only “one of the most beautiful countries on earth” but also “the birthplace of wine” and “a place where guests are considered blessings and hospitality is the very stuff of life.”
Please join WES for an evening celebration of Georgian culture and learn more about this thriving European country (80% support to EU membership). After indulging in Georgian hospitality (regional snacks and famous Georgian wine), the Ambassador will give us an insight into why the country currently experiences a boom in tourism (expected visitors 2018: 8 million; 2012: 4.4 million) but also into what the most pressing political issues (10 years since Georgia-Russia war in two regions of Georgia – Abkhazia and South Ossetia). After Ambassador’s remarks, we will open the floor to you, the guests, to either plan your next vacation, explore the long-lasting relationship between Georgia and the EU (the EU is Georgia’s largest trading partner), or to learn more about what happened in the 2008 war with Russia. We then conclude the evening with – obviously – more tasteful wine.
Join us, get a ticket on Eventbrite (the password is “WES”), and spread the word (we have more than 50 seats). Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you on the 25th.
