Due to the current situation, the planned event of the Czech Presidency in the Visegrad Group (V4) did not take place in Prague, but by means of a video conference. Germany is the most important trading partner for the Visegrad 4 region. In addition, it will be taking over the presidency in the Council of the European Union from Croatia on 1 July 2020, at a time when the Union is facing a number of serious challenges. The situation regarding the corona crisis, the economic recovery of the EU Member States, the EU’s Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027, and the gradual opening of borders and the return to a functioning Schengen Area were the areas discussed by the leaders this morning.
