Support for euro grows in Latvia

Dec 02, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

The number of euro supporters continues to grow in Latvia, new research shows.

A total of 45 percent of Latvian residents have a positive attitude towards the introduction of the euro in Latvia in November. That's  8 percent more than in July and 4 percent more than in October.

A survey by TNS Latvia shows 41 percent have a "rather positive" attitude towards Latvia's transition to the euro and four percent - a "very positive" attitude.

The figures also show 52 percent have a negative attitude towards the adoption of the euro, including 33 percent with a "rather negative" attitude and 19 percent with a "very negative" attitude.

Young people (aged 15-24), residents with higher education and high income residents (above LVL 300 per person), company managers, senior employees and specialists were the most positive about the introduction of the euro in Latvia.

People aged 65-74, residents with primary education and low incomes (up to LVL 150 per person), as well as Latgale residents were the most skeptical in this regard, reports nozare.lv.

The survey was carried out from November 6 to 20; altogether, 1,012 residents ages 15 to 74 were interviewed.
As reported, Latvia plans to join the eurozone in January 2014.
