The EC is expected to make an irresistible Eurozone offer
Adopting the euro is the only option for Bulgaria, Minister of Finance Vladislav Goranov said during a forum dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Association of Commercial Banks in Bulgaria. “The current government, just like the previous ones, believes that after nearly 20 years of a currency board the natural next step is the Eurozone,” Goranov was adamant. He went on to add that it was not that simple and not just a matter of one-sided willingness, both sides should demonstrate the sentiment – the Eurozone and the country applying for membership. Under the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, Bulgaria has to become part of the currency union sooner or later, Goranov continued.
