TALLINN - Despite an agressive campaign to build support for the euro in Estonia, the most recent EU surveys show resistance to the common currency in well above 50% and growing.

The commission's report, based on a survey conducted in September, indicated that 58 per cent of Estonians were unhappy about the move. This was four percentage points higher than in May.

Estonia is due to adopt the euro as of Jan. 1, 2011.
