President opened Local History and Culture in Kutaisi
President of Georgia opened a new building of Local History and Culture in Kutaisi today. President said he was impressed with the new museum.
For many years I have been thinking that the Kutaisi Museum of Local History and Culture needed a good and solid building. We tried many ways to modernize the building situated on the city`s main square, we mobilized state resources, asked private companies to donate, but none of them showed interest. Finally, we decided to arrange the museum in this building. This is really a very good day for me, because Kutaisi welcomed us with sunny and warm weather and bright faces,` president said.
President said he was proud to have the honor of opening the museum. Saakashvili also spoke about the new house of government, which will be opened in Kutaisi later today. He said the opening of the government`s house was a preparatory phase for the transfer of parliament from Tbilisi to Kutaisi.
`On May 26, the first session will be held at the new parliament of Georgia, which is under construction in the automobile factory settlement. It is important not only for Kutaisi, but Tskaltubo, Khoni and for all Georgia,` Saakashvili said.
