Foreign policy trend-setters in the Visegrad 4 countries say that the V4 should primarily focus on Eastern policy, migration, energy, energy security, and security, according to the results of the Association for International Affairs (AMO) survey. According to the respondents, the V4 should collaborate more frequently and extend its reach into other areas, yet they are dismissive of its deeper institutionalization or the accession of additional countries. The report seeks to identify the views of those that make, influence and implement foreign policy in the V4 countries, and it also compares the views held by foreign-policy communities in Visegrad countries. Key findings of the study show that the Intra-Visegrad relations are excellent, but the relations with Hungary are much more problematic. Foreign policy makers are also convinced that the V4 play a constructive role in the EU. The Visegrad Group is generally rated somewhat successful, especially in the realms of culture, education, coordination in the EU, policy on the Western Balkans and the energy sector. In contrast, respondents believe that cooperation on defense and Eastern policy is languishing. More information is here.
