From July 2017 to June 2018, Hungary is holding the rotating Presidency of the Visegrad Group for the fifth time.

The importance of the Visegrad Cooperation, based on the principles—mutual trust, flexibility, and a focus on common traditions, values and interests—guiding the V4 since its founding in 1991 has been growing recently. In the previous 26 years the Visegrad Group has been actively representing regional interests, since 2004 within the European Union, while contributing to the prosperity and stability of the continent via their economic performance, cooperation aimed at facilitating connectivity, support towards the neighbouring Western Balkans and Eastern Partnership regions, as well as a responsible approach to the unprecedented migration crisis.

The V4 countries constitute stability and growth in the European Union, and have the legitimate intention to contribute substantially and as equal partners to the dialogue on the future of the EU.
