Slovak Leader Suggests Abandoning the Euro

BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) -Sulik says Slovakia, which adopted the euro almost two years ago, needs a "to prepare a Plan B. That is the reintroduction of the Slovak koruna."

In an opinion piece for the business daily Hospodarske Noviny,
Sulik said Slovakia was too small to influence the eurozone
functioning but added: "We must at least protect the values that
people living in Slovakia have created."

Sulik declined to comment further Monday.

Slovakia has benefited from the euro with its economy expected
to grow by 4.1 percent this year, more than any other eurozone
member.
