Advantages and benefits of the euro

Key points

Eurobarometer surveys reveal that not always, in all countries, has the euro been enough of a success with the people. A communication strategy should be implemented in such a way as to take into account the differing national and social priorities of the target publics. The strategy needs to be seen as part of a long-term, broad-based policy.

Another main priority for ensuring greater acceptance of the euro would be economic and social policies in the EU to support employment and incomes while providing appropriate social protection systems.

As far as the EESC is concerned, it must cooperate practically in initiatives planned, if necessary with actions on the ground.
