The Tbilisi Czech Beer Days 2020 (Welcome to the Czech Beer Days at Pub “U LVA”) take place on June 23-25, showcasing the finest of Czech beer and cuisine. The newly opened Czech beer pub “U LVA” on Abashidze 24 is hosting the events from 19:00 until 23:00. The initiative is brought by the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic. The motive behind this festival is to introduce Czech culture and it is an amazing way to do so.

The opening held on June 23rd at 19:00 had a very lovely atmosphere. The welcoming hosts of the place along with the guests made the event very special. One of the highlights of the night was the authentic Czech beer, such as Pilsner Urquell. Highlighting and bringing to the forefront these traditions enriches the local community and it’s a great initiative that is being brought about.

At the opening of Czech beer Days Tbilisi 2020 was attended by the Czech ambassador to Georgia Petr Mikyska, as well as representatives of the diplomatic corps accredited in Georgia.

The event aims at introducing traditional Czech Beer - a delicious beverage with a rich flavor and Czech cuisine. During the Czech Beer Days visitors have an opportunity to benefit 1+1 offer on purchasing beer (buy one 0.5 L of Pilsner Urquell and get one for free) and 50% discount on national Czech dishes. 

We want to remind that Pilsner Urquell was first brewed in 1842 in Plzeň (Pilsen) in Western Bohemia (part of the Czech Republic) and is regarded as the historically first lager type beer. This crisp, refreshing golden lager was made with local ingredients: sweet Moravian barley, delicately bitter Saaz hops, soft Pilsen water, and bottom-fermenting H-strain yeast. The beer was named after the city where it was brewed - Pilsen, where it is still brewed today. Over the last 178 years, pilsner-style lager has become the world’s most popular beer, with seven out of 10 beers in the world imitating this innovation. There are many pilsner-style beers out there, but only one original.

  • GLOBALink | Czech EU Presidency to focus on consequences of Russia-Ukraine conflict

    Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala told the European Parliament's plenary session on Wednesday that managing the consequences of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will top the list of priorities of the Czech Republic, which took over the rotating six-month Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) on July 1.

    Under the slogan "Europe as a task," the Czech Presidency's five priorities are managing the refugee crisis and Ukraine's post-war recovery; energy security; strengthening Europe's defense capabilities and cyberspace security; the strategic resilience of the European economy; and the resilience of democratic institutions.

    Meanwhile, Ukraine's Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that the country's grain harvest is projected to reach 60 million tons this year.

    Deputy Agriculture Minister Markiyan Dmytrasevych said Ukraine would have to export between 30 million tons and 40 million tons of grain from this year's harvest to free its storage facilities.

    The official said by the end of October, Ukraine will lack capacities for storing 10-15 million tons of grain due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict that damaged storage infrastructure and blocked exports through the Black Sea.

  • Priorities of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2022

    On 1 July 2022, for the second time during the EU membership, Czechia will start its Presidency of the Council of the European Union, said the Czech Ambassador to Georgia, Petr Mikyska.

    According to him, on 14 December 2021, the General Affairs Council (GAC) endorsed the so called trio program, of three consecutive presidencies: France, Czechia and Sweden. The trio program was developed at a time when the major challenge for the EU was the post-pandemic recovery. It has therefore been focused on protecting citizens and freedoms, developing the European economic model, building a climate-neutral, green, fair and social Europe and promoting Europe’s interests and values in the world. The Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 has brought the necessity of a fundamental reassessment of the EU priorities and significantly influenced the preparation of the Czech Presidency's priorities. The Czech Presidency will address the urgent security issues while carrying on with the originally identified files such as the green and digital transition of the EU economy.

    Motto of the Czech Presidency is “Europe as a task – rethink, rebuild, repower”. Legacy of Václav Havel’s reflection about Europe’s role in a global world at a historical moment of a reshuffled world order and a reminder that Europe is a matter of constant work of every citizen. Havel's slogan also calls for responsibility and proactive decisions based on values and conscience.

    The political priorities of the CZ PRES are divided into five cross-sectoral flagship areas. They aim at responding to current challenges, as well as at pursuing the EU's long-term objectives:

    1 - Managing refugee crisis and post-war recovery of Ukraine: supporting Ukraine's sovereignty by all available means, promoting EU solidarity, efficiency and flexibility in managing the migration related issues, reaching a consensus on the granting of EU candidate status to Ukraine and contributing to its economic recovery and stability.

    2 - Energy security: reducing energy dependency on authoritarian regimes such as Russia, diversifying resources throughout the REPowerEU, mitigating the negative social and economic impacts of high energy prices.

    3 – Reinforcement of European defence capacities, incl. cybersecurity: promoting security and defence cooperation with NATO, implementing the Strategic Compass, enhancing a better intra-EU cooperation and strengthening the EU's industrial capacities in strategic areas.

    4 - Strategic resilience of EU‘s economy: reducing dependence on hostile regimes, strengthening self-sufficiency and deepening of the internal market of democratic states, accelerating digitization and adapting free market rules to these developments.

    5 - Resilience of democratic institutions: safeguarding values of democracy and rule of law, media freedom, transparency, open dialogue with citizens (incl. follow-up to the Conference on the Future of Europe) – both in online and offline spaces.

    Sectoral priorities in the area of external relations:

    Promoting a united and effective EU in external relations, building consensus among Member States in coordination with the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the European External Action Service and the Commission.

    Deepening the transatlantic partnership and strengthening relations with other like-minded countries, Ukraine and Eastern Europe, Western Balkans, Indo-Pacific and the Sahel.

    Building consensus on granting the candidate status to Ukraine, supporting the European aspirations of the associated countries of the Eastern Neighborhood, achieving concrete progress in the EU enlargement negotiations and supporting the accession process of Western Balkan candidates.

    Continuous humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and facilitation of the comprehensive reconstruction initiative (Rebuild Ukraine); promoting the nexus of humanitarian, development and security activities, resilience building, disaster risk reduction and food security.

    A calendar of multiple meetings and events to be held in Brussels, Luxembourg and in Czechia has been released. Around two thousand working groups and ambassadorial meetings are planned in Brussels. Czech ministers will chair fifty meetings with their counterparts from EU countries. More than 320 political events will take place in Czechia.

    Among the most important of these are 14 informal ministerial Councils and an informal summit of Heads of States and Governments in Prague (date, format and content of the summit tbc). Informal Councils will reflect the priorities of CZ PRES and will be held in the Prague Congress Centre (the summit will be organized in the Prague Castle) to ensure maximum safety of their participants.

    The official communication channels: Presidency website www.eu2022.cz, as well as accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and YouTube were launched on 15 June 2022.

  • Czech Senate, embassy delegation visited GPB

    Georgian Public Broadcaster (GPB) Director General Tinatin Berdzenishvili Tuesday hosted Vice-President Jiří Růžička-headed delegation of the Senate of the Czech Republic, including the chair and MPs of the Standing Senate Committee on Media, as well as the representatives of the Czech Embassy in Georgia.

    The conversation focused on the media standards and the projects to deepen links with the Czech Public Broadcaster.

    “We had an important meeting with the representatives of the Czechia. We consider the Public Broadcaster an essential institution for the EU states and the country on the European integration path. The talks concentrated on media standards that the Public Broadcaster and the overall media should follow. Fake news as a global challenge was in focus. GPB should continue the partnership with similar organizations through the European Broadcasting Union. We discussed ongoing projects and the prospects for further cooperation with the Czech Public Broadcaster. I believe the significance of the public broadcaster will be many times highlighted on that EU integration path,” Tinatin Berdzenishvili said.

    Vice-President Jiří Růžička said that the delegation reviewed the situation in Georgia as the Czech Republic is to hold the EU presidency on June 1.

    “It was an important meeting with the head of the GPB First Channel. We talked about media, journalism and mainly media independence,” Jiří Růžička said.
