We are honoured to present you with a special publication on the 25th anniversary of the Visegrad Group. This book brings together the finest, contemporary political minds to discuss eleven of the most important issues affecting Visegrad today. Ranging from the values and history of the V4 to the future growth and infrastructural development in the region, it covers the most fundamental and pressing reasons for the continued cooperation. We hope that, through the views shared by these distinguished voices and opinion-leaders, readers will gain insight into the Central European perspective on a variety of issues which are currently dominating discussions in the European as well as global arenas.

The Visegrad Group has always had the goal of being an active participant in the international, European and transatlantic communities. Today, it has accomplished and continues to reinforce its strong stance within these forums. Therefore, this book should be read not only as an account of the accomplishments of the last twenty-five years, but also as a possible guide for the future hopes and potential dilemmas of the region.
