More Romanians want to join the Eurozone, EC survey reads

More Romanians want the adoption of the European currency, the number increased in the past year to 69%, up from 64%, a Eurobarometer released by the European Commission reads. Nevertheless, 55% believe the adoption of EUR would lead to higher prices.

Some 26% of Romanians believe we are ready to adopt the European currency, against 24% last year. 41% believe the move will take place in five year’s time (against 3% last year), 31% envisage it in ten years and 22% say the adoption will never take place.

Asked if the adoption of EUR will have positive or negative consequences, 11% say positive effects are expected, 43% – rather positive effects, 27% – rather negative effects and 13% – very negative consequences.

The EC also informs that men are more open towards the adoption of the European currency (57%) than women (45%).

The survey was conducted in April 2018 on 7,008 respondents in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Sweden and Romania.
