Croatia's path to the Euro ever closer

By  Jun 26, 2019

Croatia is moving ever closer to the inevitable adoption of the Euro as the official currency and the ditching of the Kuna with news from the Prime Minister’s Office that next week a letter of intent to join the Eurozone will be sent to Brussels.

Speaking to Croatia Radio today Andrej Plenkovic stated that “We are taking the first step to become what is called European Exchange Rate Mechanism II. I think we did very good consultations with both the Central Bank and the Commission, specifying several reform areas on which we will be working over the next year.”

Plenkovic, who is keen to push through adopting the Euro, has held several high level meetings with EU leaders recently including the European Bank President Mario Draghi and has now stated that the letter of intent would be sent to the EU by the middle of next week.
