Prime Minister Donald Tusk says that Poland needs to set a date for euro adoption to avoid the country's marginalization in the EU

Could Poland adopt the euro in 2016?

Roman Kuźniar, who is President Bronisław Komorowski's international affairs advisor, has said that a very realistic date for Poland to adopt the euro is 2016, based on calculations prepared by the Chancellery of the President, reported.

On Friday, Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that Poland cannot remain on the outskirts of the euro zone, since that would lead to marginalization, while preparedness to adopt the common currency would strengthen Poland’s position.

He added that the country will provide a specific date once it is certain that the date could be respected.

Analysts agree that Poland should declare an adoption date to maintain influence in decision-making circles, as the European Union wants to break the crisis through tighter integration.
