In July 2013, Latvia was given final approval by the Economic and Financial Affairs Council to adopt the euro on 1 January 2014. It is the result of the impressive efforts and determination of the Latvian people and authorities. Belonging to the euro area is much more than sharing a currency with other countries. It is about joining a community based on solidarity, responsibility and mutual benefits. This new accession also underlines the vitality of the Economic and Monetary Union and is a sign of confidence in the euro. This video presents general views of Riga and Daugavplis, dual pricing shops and market, Euro Exhibition & Campaign.
