(MTI) – Cultural cooperation on the Visegrad Group is long-standing and effective, Judit Hammerstein, Hungary’s cultural deputy state secretary, told a V4 conference on Thursday.
Senior V4 culture officials met on the second day of the event in western Hungary’s Fertod and reviewed ongoing and prospective joint cultural projects undertaken between the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia and reviewed outcomes of completed projects, Hammerstein told a press conference.
The four countries agreed to cooperate on cultural matters in international forums such as UNESCO when it comes to nominating heritage sites and to jointly lobby Brussels for stronger support and a greater role for culture in the EU 2020 strategy, she added.
The Fertod event concludes the Hungarian V4 presidency’s work in the area of culture, she said, noting that Slovakia will hold the V4 presidency and pursue this agenda from July.
