Romania and Hungary have the highest rates of support for the conversion to the euro.

In Hungary, 69 percent of the population supports the introduction of the single currency, according to a quick Eurobarometer survey on the introduction of the euro published by the European Commission today.

According to the analysis of data collected in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden from 20 to 29 April, there is widespread support for the introduction of the euro in these countries:

On average, 60 percent of respondents would like their country to join the eurozone.

The proportion of supporters of switching to the euro is highest in Romania (77%) and Hungary (69%), and lowest in Sweden (45%), Bulgaria (44%) and the Czech Republic (44%). The proportion of Hungarian respondents against the introduction of the euro increased from 26% to 28% between 2021 and 2022.

However, the introduction of the euro in Hungary is not expected in the near future. Although Governor György Matolci said last year, “Hungary wants to adopt the euro,” Orbán’s government has not even mentioned a target date, emphasizing economic independence.
