FinMin: Poland is in no hurry to enter euro-zone.

By bne IntelliNews February 20, 2013
The government is now advocating entering the euro-zone quickly; the entry will be beneficial, if Poland is well-prepared for this move, according to minister of finance Jacek Rostowski. He stressed during a parliamentary debate that thanks to adopting the euro, the Polish economy will grow faster. Earlier, PM Donald Tusk said that his government will strive for joining the euro-zone, but it will decide on the issue only when the euro-zone itself is ready for enlargement, and especially - the Polish economy. Hence, it is not advisable to hurry to take on the single currency, he concluded. When Poland joined the European Union in 2004, it obliged itself to take on the euro, but with no time restraints.
