We all, together, should rediscover our motherland and all places that are forgotten. Such a statement made today the Prime Minister of Georgia in the village of Asureti, Kvemo Kartli.
“The first German settlement in Georgia dated to 1827 and rehabilitation of one of the streets in Asureti was dedicated to the 200th jubilee of the settlement.
The program was symbolic that would give stimulus to the development of internal tourism. We opened borders to Germany unconditionally. German people were exiled from Georgia after World War II but this was a wonderful history of coexistence.
When tourism was fully opened and foreign tourists started arriving in Georgia, Georgian people had to be the best guides to tell the history of Georgia to international visitors”, - said Giorgi Gakharia.
The Head of the Government visited the rehabilitated German settlement with the Minister of Regional Development and Infrastructure Maia Tskitishvili and German Ambassador to Georgia Hubert Knirsch.
