Membership in Economic and monetary union, for which Lithuanian is being prepared and which is being planned for the start of 2007, will mean cancellation of the council of currency and introduction of the new rules on monetary policy. It could be considered that joining of the Economic and monetary union is one of the most significant questions of the agenda of economic policy. Even though Lithuania has an obligation to become a member of euro zone as it set out in the agreement on entering the EU, and in this respect has no such a possibility to choose as United Kingdom or Denmark, the principal question on strengths and weaknesses of euro zone to compare with currently existing system is widely discussed in Lithuanian society. It has to be stressed that on this beforehand mentioned question the opinions of Government and society are the most different, so that is the reason why the economic public opinion model has been chosen and purpose raised – to discus results of implementation of economic policy programme of Lithuanian integration to the EU and to submit public opinion on analysis of vicissitude of membership in European Union and find out the measures of influence.
