Lithuania Euro Coins - Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite has put off her country’s changeover to the euro and the abolition of the national monetary unit, the litas, for two years. She believes that the adoption of the united European monetary unit might take place in 2016. On the face of it, the new left-off-center Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius said Tuesday that “the changeover will occur before 2015.”
As for the previous plans to effectuate the transition in 2014, Grybauskaite believes the date is too premature, since that transition will be scarcely possible because of the high inflation level. “Lithuania’s transition to the euro in the years 2015 or 2016 looks quite realistic,” she said.
26 January 2013 - The Prime Minister of Lithuania, Mr. Aļģirds Butkevičs last Thursday announced that Lithuania will adopt the euro in 2015. He said that if everything goes as planned Lithuania should be ready for the euro changeover.
