We are honoured to present you with a special publication on the 25th anniversary of the Visegrád Group. This book brings together the finest, contemporary political minds to discuss eleven of the most important issues affecting Visegrád 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 that are currently dominating discussions in the European as well as global arenas.
