Ambassador Badridze gives his Independence Day address

Joy for Georgia
It was apt that Ambassador Georgi Badridze toasted the 20th anniversary of Georgia regaining its independence with a glass of wine from the country famed for being the cradle of wine-making. It was a reminder that while Georgia is a young state, it has a 3000-year history. Despite many overlords, Georgia has retained its culture, faith and language. Now, after two difficult decades, Georgia remains determined to be integrated into Europe and although Georgia is “still an apprentice in democracy” said the Ambassador, “there is no turning back.” After the speech, guests were treated to a performance of Georgian music, great wine and a prize draw for a trip to Georgia.
