Only 25 % of eurozone citizens happy with Bulgaria, Romania entry

Date: 30.01.2007

Only a quarter of the citizens in the big eurozone countries have a positive view of the entry into the European Union this year of Bulgaria and Romania, according to an FT-Harris poll.

The survey showed that most adults in the largest European countries think migration has reduced wages.

More than two-thirds of the French, Italians and Spanish - and more than half of Germans - believe the single currency has had a "negative impact". In France, just 5 % said the euro has had a positive effect on the French economy.

However, eurozone citizens generally see wider benefits of the euro, the survey shows.

"More Germans, Italians and Spanish see a positive impact on the EU economy than a negative effect. That suggests they see others benefiting rather than themselves. The exceptions are the French, more of whom see a negative rather than positive impact."

Nevertheless, more than half of citizens in countries using the euro say they prefer their former national currency, according to the poll of 5,314 adults in Germany, the UK, France, Spain and Italy, which was conducted between January 10 and January 22. Almost two-thirds of Germans say they preferred their former currency, the D-Mark.
