Voices and Values

Danuta Glondys, director of the Villa Decius Association, held a session the last day which was  sharing of personal attitudes and recommendations. She thanked the participants for their engagement and endurance. Then, she presented them the announced priorities of the current Polish Presidency of the Visegrad Group (July 2016-June 2017), especially the approach to demographical challenges, efforts towards Neighbourhood and Enlargement Policy as well as energy cooperation and cooperation with non-European partners. “Some parts are very good, some are weaker“, Danuta Glondys commented on the policy. She is convinced that the V4 countries have a strong voice in the European Union.
