Poland is not ready to adopt the euro, and this issue will be considered in 10-20 years’ time, Development and Finance Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has said.
“We're not ready now. If we are ready in 10-20 years in terms of micro- and macro-economics, then of course we will be able to consider it,” Morawiecki told a press conference.
On Tuesday, Morawiecki, who also serves as Poland’s deputy Prime Minister, added that Poland’s accession treaty obliges it to adopt the common European currency.
He said that this issue would be dealt with in a referendum, because the country's constitution clearly specifies the Polish złoty as the national currency.
Poland joined the European Union in 2004. (rg/pk)
