    Poland will be able to join the eurozone no sooner than 2020, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Janusz Piechocinski said Saturday.

    WARSAW, October 11 (RIA Novosti) - Poland will be able to join the eurozone no sooner than 2020, Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Janusz Piechocinski said Saturday.

    "It turned out, as we now see, that we will be in the euro area after 2020, unless there is a major crisis in the world economy," Piechocinski told Polish radio station RMF FM.

    He added that Warsaw will introduce a single European currency, the euro, but first it is needed to wait for the improvement of the situation in the eurozone itself.

    Several years ago, then Prime Minister Donald Tusk said at the World Economic Forum in Krynica that Poland would join the eurozone in 2012.
