The EU has begun a reflection process and discussion on its own future already during the Slovak Presidency in 2016. This process was planned to be concluded by the Conference on the Future of the EU, intended to provide renewed momentum to the European integration. The abrupt emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent human and economic damages to the Member States forced the EU to engage in crisis management first and foremost, and its long-term agenda secondly.  It is clear that the post-pandemic recovery, which is increasingly revolving around advancing the green and digital transitions, will influence the future of the EU. This panel discussion aims to explore the Visegrad countries' views on the recovery, how it aligns with the overarching priorities of the EU, and future directions of the European integration.
