Slovakia Meets Criteria for Euro Adoption
04. 06. 2008
As required from any other EU Member State outside the Eurozone, Slovakia had to meet four convergence criteria, the so-called Maastricht criteria, prior to its entry to the Eurozone. The first criterion concerns public finance, the second is the inflation criterion, the third concerns the stability of long-term interest rates, and the last is exchange rate stability.Slovak official euro changeover website
The criteria for the adoption of the euro by Slovakia were fulfilled in March 2008.
