Future

Poland's entry into the European Union (2004) means it must adopt the euro but not immediately. The złoty will be the main currency and the euro a secondary one. Introduction of the euro in Poland will most probably not happen before 2010¹, although certain conditions could delay the introduction. Poland itself said in June 2004 that it would like to join the euro in 2008, this forecast mainly being made due to its strong quarterly GDP growth and the lowering of the budget deficit. However, the złoty will remain the currency for the foreseeable future.
