Polish politicians vaguely evaluated Croatia’s transition to the euro currency

WARSAW, January 2 – RIA Novosti. Polish politicians ambiguously evaluated Croatia’s transition to the euro currency.

On January 1, Croatia introduced the euro currency and also became a member of the Schengen area.

Krzysztof Bosak, vice-president of the Polish National Movement and Sejm, believes that Croatia has lost its main sovereignty by adopting the euro. He explained on Twitter that Croatian authorities are now deprived of “the ability to conduct monetary policy and influence financial markets”.

“The Croatian government abandoned its own currency, adopted the euro, and thus placed the country under the jurisdiction of the central bank in Frankfurt am Main,” Bosak said. said.

Radoslaw Sikorski, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland, Member of the European Parliament also said that for his country, the euro currency would be a better solution than the current financial leadership. “I would prefer that the European Central Bank Council (Adam, chairman of the Polish National Bank) be responsible for Glapiński for the security of the Polish currency,” Sikorski said.

MEP Lukasz Kohut called for Poland’s “further European integration”. “From today Croatia in the Eurozone and the Schengen area. Poland has been in the Schengen area since December 2007, eurotime, goodbye to the zloty,” he wrote on Twitter.

Discussions about the adoption of the euro currency by Poland have been going on for many years and there is no agreement among politicians on this issue. In July 2022, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of the ruling Law and Justice party, said that the transition to the euro would have a detrimental effect on the Polish financial and economic system. “The euro would have killed us in the 2008-2009 crisis and it would have killed us even more today,” he said.
