INVITATION: The Visegrad Four and Germany: which shared priorities in the next Commission?

We are honoured to invite you to a debate organized by our Brussels office titled 'The Visegrad Four and Germany: which shared priorities in the next Commission?' The event will take place at Fondation Universitaire in Brussels on October 16. You can look forward to 4 expert speakers, including one MEP. Read the whole article to find out their names and get more information.

The Visegrad Four countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia) have always looked to Berlin as one of their most natural partners, a fact that has been only reinforced by the future departure of the UK. Will the V4 countries and Germany continue to show unity on issues such as single market, migration or curbing the effects of climate change, or can we foresee certain key disagreements? Can we expect a showdown on rule of law issues? Will a new Green deal provide a key element in continued German investments in the region?

Confirmed speakers:

  • Vladimír Bilčík, Member of European Parliament (Slovakia)
  • Roland Freudenstein, Policy Director, Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies
  • Milan Nič, Head of the Robert Bosch Center for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central
