The potential accession to the euro zone is a very current issue for Poland. Its importance is increased by the consequences of the recent economic crisis that can be seen in the global economy and particularly in the economies of European Union member states. The paper finds that the analyzed sample of companies is dominated by euro-enthusiasts, who are aware of the opportunities and risks related to “euro-based” operation. Neutralization of the risks associated with entering the euro zone and companies’ ability to take full advantage of it should be supported by thoughtful economic policy actions. The proposed set of recommendations is very extensive, but some are highlighted in details.
