No, Poland has agreed to eventually accept Euro without actually agreeing on any specific date.

President or Prime Minister said we will/would be ready to adopt euro in 2015.

There are economic guidelines that Poland must pass. This article explains it all

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poland_and_the_euro

Blessing in disguise, we were turned down in 2009
"In an interview for Rzeczpospolita daily 22 October 2009 he also said Poland could adopt the euro in 2014 if the general government deficit is reduced in 2012"

Now it's us dragging our feet to the original agreement. We caught a huge break because we are in position of power now given our expanding economy. At this point Euro needs us more than we need the Euro. It would be idiotic to switch currencies in the next 5 years (atleast)

Thanks all for your reply, I think that this is going to a major mistake if Poland adopts the Euro. Not only will it lose its competitive manufacturing advantage the price of everything will go through the roof. The next few years are going to see devaluation of the major currencies Euro, USD, GBP JY etc as the nation's with large debt try inflate it away. Poland would do very well not to take it on. Has Tusk scheduled a refendum of the people?

no, the guy doesn't like referendums, adopting euro will require a change in the constitution anyway

Wrong, Poland refused to adopt it , for fear it would drag the country into recession. Very good decision at the time. It was helped of course by the fact that the 3 criteria were not met.

Indeed

Has Tusk scheduled a refendum of the people?

Not doable, because Poland pledged to take the euro at some point in the future (with no firm date) when it joined the EU in 2004

Poland didn't qualify, still doesn't. Its academic, the Euro is not in a good enough state for Poland's entry. Once it is, Poland can/will proceed.

It won't make any difference. Plenty of countries have the Euro and haven't 'perished'.
