Estonia Officially Joins the Struggling Euro Club

By Jan 1, 2011, 6:46 PM Author's Blog  

Estonia switched smoothly to the euro on Saturday, brushing off worries about a crisis in the currency club which is likely to put off bigger eastern European nations from joining for up to a decade. The Baltic state of 1.3 million became the 17th euro zone country at midnight and was the first former Soviet state to adopt the euro, capping 20 years of integration with the West. – Reuters
