In a crisis-hit and multipolar world, non-traditional partners have started to partner up. For the V4 and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) states, renewed interest in the economic sphere has not translated yet into an expansion of bilateral relations in other areas. To intensify cooperation, the V4 countries could think on increasing political dialogue with specific countries (e.g., Brazil, Mexico) or subregional groupings (e.g., Mercosur or the Pacific Alliance) and invest more in “track-two” diplomacy, which is generally a low-cost but high-return investment. The prospects for further intensification of relations suggest the dynamically developing LAC countries are potentially interesting partners for political, economic and scientific cooperation for members of the V4.
