Hungarians Want Euro More Than Most Non-Eurozone EU Countries
Hungarians support the adoption of the euro more than citizens of most non-eurozone EU countries, according to a survey by Eurobarometer.

The 69% support for the euro in Hungary is exceeded only by the 75% figure in Romania.

Support for the euro is lowest in the Czech Republic, at 33%, and Sweden, at 43%.

The difference between Hungary and the Czech Republic is that the forint has weakened against the euro but the Czech crown has strengthened, Eurobarometer observes. The crown has become 20% stronger against the common currency over the last 15 years, while the Polish zloty strengthened by 10%.

The survey was conducted in Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Sweden.

Bulgaria and Croatia are set to adopt the euro at the start of 2023.
