Factors of Weakness

Dependence on the eurozone

The Polish zloty is the official currency of Poland. It has a history dating back to the Middle Ages, but the most recent version of the currency was introduced in 1995 as a result of a redenomination of the old currency. Poland, as a member of the European Union, is expected to introduce the euro as an official currency, but there is no set date and it is not likely to occur in the near future.
