ZAGREB (Reuters) – Croatia aims to become a euro zone member within the next seven to eight years, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Monday.

“We don’t want to specify the exact dates, but we want Croatia to become a euro zone member within two government terms in office,” Plenkovic told an economic conference devoted to the introduction of the euro in Croatia.

The current center-right government came to power a year ago.
