The V4 promotes regional cooperation between the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary.
The four countries' leaders are to hold talks on Western Balkan countries' aspirations to join the European Union as well as their own plans for membership in the bloc, presidential chief of staff Krzysztof Szczerski told journalists ahead of the visit.
Supporting neighbouring EU hopefuls is one of Hungary's key goals as it presides over the Visegrad Group.
V4 leaders were also expected to discuss innovation in technology, including the formation of the EU digital single market. Another item on the agenda is Brexit – the issue will be under discussion at a time when European Council President Donald Tusk and the V4 prime ministers will touch on the same topic in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Meetings within the Visegrad Group format are held annually. Last year, the talks took place in Poland. (aba/vb)
