Romania Sets 2019 as Target Date to Join Euro Area, Voinea Says

Romania set January 1, 2019 as its target date for joining the euro as the country meets almost all adoption criteria, Budget Minister Liviu Voinea said.

Voinea informed the other member states about Romania’s plan during a meeting of the European Union’s finance ministers in Brussels today, Voinea said in a phone interview. The target date is also included in the country’s convergence program that will be sent to the European Commission in the coming days.
