The common European currency, the euro, enjoys higher popularity among Slovaks than the euro area average.
A total of 76 percent of Europeans think the euro is a good thing for the European Union, a recent Eurobarometer survey shows. The figure is higher, at 81 percent, for Slovakia. In general, this is the highest support for the euro since the introduction of euro coins and banknotes in 2002.
“I am glad to see this record-high support for our single currency on my last days in office as President of the European Commission,” Jean-Claude Juncker said, as quoted in the press release. He went on to say that the euro has been the fight of a lifetime and it is one of Europe's best assets for the future.
