FinMin: Poland to join euro-zone when it is repaired and safe.

By bne IntelliNews June 25, 2012
Poland will join the euro-zone, when it is already repaired and safe, posing no risk that one of the walls breaks down, according to minister of finance Jacek Rostowski. He stressed that Poland has no deadline for entering the exchange rate mechanism ERM2, but has to spend two years under this regime when it finally decides for such a move. When Poland joined the European Union in 2004, it obliged itself to take on the euro, but with no time restraints. The current government, which initially targeted joining the euro-zone in 2011-2012, now avoids declaring a new target date.
