Adam Glapinński, the governor of Poland’s central bank, has emphasized that discussions about Poland joining the eurozone should only take place once the country achieves economic parity with the wealthiest European nations.
Speaking at a conference, Glapiński stated, “From a purely economic point of view, a discussion on this topic will be appropriate when Poland reaches the GDP per capita of, for example, the most developed European countries, like Germany, France, or other top-ranking nations.”
Glapinński cautioned against a hasty entry into the eurozone, pointing out that such a move would lead to Poland relinquishing control over its monetary policy, which is currently tailored to the domestic economy. He also highlighted the potential constraints on the country’s ability to implement customized fiscal policies. The governor’s remarks underscore the need for Poland to carefully consider the implications before making any decisions regarding its participation in the eurozone.”
