2022 for Romania to join the euro zone

Foreign minister Teodor Melescanu declared that Romania may join the euro zone in 2022, once the incomes of its citizens will rise.

“Already today we meet all formal requirements, we could join the currency union even tomorrow. But we’re afraid that it will have a negative effect on the poorest, pensioners’ incomes,” Melescanu told Polish Rzeczpospolita daily quoted by Reuters. “I think that we will adopt the euro in five years, in 2022,” he also said.

This is the third version advanced by a romanian official after the innitial date of 2019 set for the addoption of the euro.
