– Central Europe has a chance to make a huge leap forward – said Zsolt Németh, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament, in an online speech at the “Europe of the Carpathians” International Conference on Saturday.


A monograph entitled "The Visegrad Atlas" – the first such publication in fifty chapters, compiled by over 40 scientists and experts and edited by Polish academics Przemyslaw Sleszynski and Konrad Czapiewski, in collaboration with the Polish Geographical Society (PTG) and the Waclaw Felczak Institute for Polish-Hungarian Cooperation in Warsaw – was presented at the opening of the conference on Saturday.

Zsolt Németh: three goals for the Visegrad Group

– Central Europe has a chance to make a huge leap forward – said Zsolt Németh, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. He also formulated three goals for V4 cooperation:

1) further construction of the more widely perceived Central European area, primarily by the infrastructural developments; 

2) common advocacy in Europe in the debate on the future of the EU ( – We must create unity in diversity and preserve the role of nation states – he said). 

3) V4's commitment to solidarity with European countries outside the EU, ie. Serbia, and support for the enlargement of the EU;
