Protecting our culture, our historical heritage, is the duty of each of us, because it is the cornerstone of our cultural identity. The cultural heritage of Georgia is our main treasure. It clearly shows that Georgia is not only a part of Europe, but also a culture that contributes greatly to creation of true European values. The entire world got to know the cultural heritage and rediscovered Georgia as a unique country with a unique history and rich roots. The hard work that goes into caring for our historic monuments is, of course, to the credit of each employee of the agency and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
