Swedes More Sceptical About Euro

A mere 29 per cent of Swedes would support the introduction of the euro if there was a referendum tomorrow, according to a new poll by Novus Opinion.

The recent financial crisis affecting eurozone countries has led many Swedes to believe that the single European currency would not benefit Sweden, reports TV 4 news. Nearly half of those polled believe that the crisis will have negative effects on the Swedish economy.

In a similar poll held in April nearly half (47 per cent) of Swedes said they would vote yes if there was a referendum on the euro.
