Apart from the president of Georgia, Buba Kikabidze, Georgian singer and actor, was invited to the event. According to Kikabidze’s producer Rati Abzianidze, Kikabidze had been invited to the concert dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Georgian church in Paris. The concert and the inauguration coincided and Kikabidze is taking part in the
concert as it had been planned earlier.
