The main topic of the event was the enlargement of the European Union to embrace countries of the Western Balkans as well to expand the Schengen area and establish energy security.

At the press conference following the event, the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affiars and Trade, Péter Szijjártó was of the view that “A strong EU is impossible without a strong Central and Southeastern Europe.”

He added that the region is justified in harbouring expectations towards the EU, and expects the European Union to assure the continued existence of the Schengen Area, facilitate the establishment of Central European energy security, and accelerate EU enlargement.
