    9th June 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of the International Visegrad Fund, set up to promote regional cooperation in Central Europe and between the V4 and other countries. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the value of positive neighbourhood and cross-border relations, with Slovakia, Czechia, Hungary, Poland, and Austria working together by choice as much as by necessity. Can this close cooperation maintain its momentum and strengthen Visegrad cooperation in long-term? In what ways can the V4 countries cooperate to ensure that the post-pandemic recovery period benefits the region in monetary as well as structural areas? And what needs to be done to firmly embed the V4 perspective into policymaking on the EU level, on European and global matters?
