Romania wants to accelerate euro adoption

Bucharest is looking in to adopting the euro before the current target of 2014 in order to more closely link Romania's economy with other members of the European Union.

Emil Boc, Romania's prime minister, said on Wednesday that the government will discuss whether to try to join the euro before the current target of 2014. He did not share any further details.

The news comes on the back of mounting concern that the leu's volatility and rapid recent depreciation could undermine stability.
