After Germany in 2010, Liechtenstein in 2011 and Switzerland in 2012, it was Austria's turn to host the event this year and so president Heinz Fischer invited Swiss president Ueli Maurer, German president Joachim Gauck and Hereditary Prince Alois as Liechtenstein's representative to Innsbruck today. The main aim of the meeting was to talk different topics that are of special importance to the four neighbouring countries as well as to strengthen the existing relations. The key issues of this year's talks are the political situation of the member states of the European Union five years after the beginning of the financial crisis and the future of democracy in the European Union though they also talked about the current situation in Syria.
