Poland refused to enter the euro

Kaczynski stressed that only the strongest economies benefit from the transition to the euro
While Latvia is summing up the transition to the euro, the leader of the Polish ruling party, Law and Justice, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, believes that it is too early to introduce Euro currency in Poland.
“We have to wait. And this will take many years. We need to equalize the level of Poland’s economy not only with the European average - this will not be enough, but with Germany,” said Kaczynski.
He stressed that only the strongest economies benefit from the transition to the euro. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky, in turn, cited examples of Lithuania and Slovakia neighboring Poland, which lost more than benefited from the euro. He also said that the opposition Civic Platform party aims to introduce the euro in Poland. Politicians of the Civil Platform declare in reply that they do not plan anything like that.
Note that Poland has committed itself to the introduction of the euro, joining the European Union. But in the agreement on the country's accession to the EU does not specify the date of introduction into circulation of the common European currency.
