Eurobarometer: Strengthening support for the euro

6 November 2015

The European Commission has today released its latest Eurobarometer survey. In Lithuania, which joined the euro in January this year, the survey showed that 55% of respondents see the euro as good for their country and 77% see the euro as good for the EU.

The survey shows that euro area citizens' overall support for the euro has risen, with 61% of respondents confirming that they see the single currency as good for their own country (compared to 57% last year). This marks the highest level of support since the Commission started the surveys in 2002. Moreover, 71% of those surveyed said that the euro is good for the EU.
