On 11 October a two-day meeting began in the High Tatras of Slovakia between the presidents of four Central European countries comprising the so-called Visegrád Four (V4). The traditional summit between the presidents of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia was hosted by Slovak President Andrej Kiska, whose country is now presiding over the V4.

The Czech Republic was represented by President Miloš Zeman. According to the Office of the Slovak President, the heads of state were scheduled to discuss the situation in Europe and the influence of modern technologies on the economy and society.

They were also slated to discuss the aging population, how to address problems of the Romani community, and social policy generally. Last year the V4 presidents gathered in the Hungarian town of Szekszárd, where they supported, for example, integrating countries from the Western Balkans into the European Union and expressed their view that the enlargement process should be accelerated.
