Tusk says Slovakia’s eurozone accession should encourage Poles

Poland’s prime minister, Donald Tusk, said that he expects Slovakia's successful entry to the eurozone to persuade Poles of the advantages of the single European currency.

Poland’s prime minister, Donald Tusk, said that he expects Slovakia's successful entry to the eurozone to persuade Poles of the advantages of the single European currency.

He was speaking at a Visegrad Four (V4) summit in Warsaw at which Slovakia’s prime minister, Robert Fico, invited his counterparts to Bratislava on January 8, 2009, to celebrate the introduction of the euro in Slovakia.

Fico said he believes that he will prove to them that the euro can be a success even in a post-communist country.

Also at the summit, Fico suggested establishing a regional investment bank, a project in which Slovenia and Croatia could also participate in addition to the V4 group of countries (Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary). The bank would finance important investments in the region, for example energy projects. Experts are to discuss the possible establishment of the bank by the end of next week. SITA
