The Slovak Republic is holding its fifth Presidency of the Visegrad Group (V4) from July 2018 until June 2019


The Slovak Presidency wishes to put emphasis on the strengthening of internal dynamics, competitiveness, security, interconnectivity and cohesion of the Visegrad region within the EU. The motto of the Slovak Presidency Dynamic Visegrad for Europe expresses the fulfilment of these ambitions.

Within the three main objectives of the Slovak Presidency (Strong Europe, Secure Environment and Smart Solutions) the Slovakia´s leadership in the V4 will advocate, among others, for a strong Common Agricultural Policy of the EU and the effective implementation of dual food quality measures in practice, with the main aim to improve conditions of European farmers. The priorities of Slovakia´s V4 Group Presidency in the agri-food sector are stated in the „Presidency Programme“ on pages 20-21.
